  • Potato salad with egg and capers: Add 3 hard-boiled eggs (chopped) and 3 tablespoons of capers. Omit the mint. Bacon is optional in this version.
  • Potato salad with semi-dried tomato, red onion and avocado: Replace bacon, spring onion and mint, with 1/4 cup chopped semi-dried tomato, 3 tablespoons finely chopped red onion and 1 just-ripe avocado (diced). Instead of mayonnaise or salad dressing add 1/4 cup French dressing mixed with 1 teaspoon of Dijon (French) mustard.
  • Mint and yoghurt potato salad: Mix 1 cup unsweetened yoghurt with 1/2 cup apple sauce and 1/4 cup finely chopped mint. Use as the dressing on 1kg cooked chopped potato. Garnish with extra mint.

HFG tip

Healthy habits

  • Leaving skins on potato – adds extra fibre.
  • Using low-fat mayonnaise/salad dressing instead of regular (high-fat) versions.
  • Using lean bacon and trimming all the fat.
  • Adding pumpkin seeds as a garnish – adds extra protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals.
