Mom’s potato salad bids good-bye to my 2014 salad recipe collection. It is, by far, the simplest and healthiest one I’ve ever tasted. I hope you agree with me. Simple fresh ingredients and very low amount of fat or heavy seasoning make this salad a healthy treat. Look for more health conscious blog posts now and then. It seems there is an increased awareness of healthy products in markets today. Every time I shop greater amount of healthy brands and products pop up in shelves and I am delighted to be a part of that ‘balanced’ way of feeding myself and loved ones. For example, price of vegetarian fed, cage free eggs are lower than a few months ago. That is what I included in this salad recipe, as I use those regularly at home now.
Yields 1 serving. Multiply portions per person at your table.
1 potato (russet potatoes work great.)
4 Tablespoons of cooked peas and carrots (fresh or frozen.)
1 Tablespoon of olive oil mayonnaise
Salt and Pepper to taste.
Peel the potato and cut it in chunks. Boil until it is soft. Transfer to a cup while draining the liquid. Cook the peas and carrots and transfer to another bowl while draining the liquid. Boil the egg, cut in chunks. Chill each ingredient in its separate bowl in the refrigerator.
When each of them is cold, then mix them and add mayonnaise, salt and pepper.
My Mom’s potato salad is the simplest, most enjoyable, delicious treat! 🙂
