Serves: 2 

  • 2 medium sized potatoes, peeled and cut into 2cm dice
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1 fat clove garlic, peeled
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons good quality mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon salad cream
  • 1 teaspoon paprika (or to taste)
  • 2 cherry peppers from jar, seeded and finely diced

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Boil the potatoes until tender, drain in a sieve and run under cold water. Leave until cool.
  2. Add the potatoes in a mixing bowl, add the spring onions and crush the garlic directly into the bowl. Mix well.
  3. Add seasoning to taste and the remaining ingredients. Mix well. Place into a serving bowl, cover and chill until ready to serve.
  4. Remove from the fridge 15 to 30 minutes before serving to bring to room temperature.


You can also use 8 to 10 small new potatoes instead of the 2 medium potatoes. I used the Aleyna brand of cherry peppers.

I nearly dismissed this recipe as it had no reviews but I'm glad I didn't! I used baby potatoes and made the coating exactly to the recipe and it was so tasty. If your worried about it being too spicy/hot - as long as you use picante peppers it really adds something different. It's got a slight kick but they are not hot peppers - more sweet. I will be making this again! - 02 Sep 2016
