Hello, for Love Your Christmas Home today I’m sharing today one of my oldest and most favourite Christmas recipes, it’s super simple, super tasty and very special – you can pull it out of your sleeve without too much effort and it will taste as if you have been standing for hours preparing when really you’ve been soaking in the bath with a glass of Christmas bubbles – my (and I know your) kinda recipe.

So here we go this is a recipe for Christmas Garlic Potato Salad, I first had this years and years ago on the patio of a French farmhouse deep down in the heart of the French countryside (yup there was rather a lot of vino involved), it’s been with me ever since – I’ve changed it up now and then but really it’s pretty much one of those recipes you don’t need to start messing with.  And it’s also one of those recipes that you can bring to the table (or take to a gathering) at Christmas time (or for any special occasion) and it all just works…

The best thing about this is that there are three ingredients, I love and hanker after recipes with only a few ingredients in them, I don’t know why but there is something so very attractive about turning a few things into one big (very nice) thing…and somehow everything just feels so much simpler with a few ingredients, so for this, basically, you need potatoes, mayonnaise and garlic, and to throw in a sparkly bauble for good measure when you present it and you’re all good to go.  How hard can that be?

Over the years I’ve tried many different mayonnaises (I know we all tend to stick to a fave brand, but I love to try out new ones too) and I don’t know about you but mayonnaise in a jar can sometimes be not the best – I think it’s when it’s made with powdered eggs that it just does not hit the right note…so for this recipe I used Praise Whole Egg Mayonnaise, it’s a premium mayonnaise and we loved it and it tastes amazing…plus Praise uses lovely Australian eggs, fresh local produce and is made right here in Australia – I love buying Aussie, you know that, say no more.

    lovely photos Sarah.

    Im wondering if the Praise has the same sort of taste as Best Food or S&W?
    In the past Praise has been way too sweet for my taste – Im interested but would love to know how it compares – without buying yet another jar….I know you’ve used the above before so will trust your opinion :)

      hmmmm, ok I just went to the fridge for another taste of this – dolloped a spoon in…to me this is not too sweet, I don’t like sweet either, in fact the sweet ones make me feel a bit icky iykwim, to me this one is very eggy which is why I liked it and it’s creamy too, which I also like and quite lemony…sugar is the 5th ingredient on the list on the back, if you don’t like too eggy I don’t think you’ll like this but the sweetness to my palate is not there…hope that helps xoxoxo

    You can also add a bit of sour cream to it and it will give a creamier taste

    Would creme fresh be a possible mayonnaise substitute? Eggy mayonnaises creep me out.

    An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a colleague who has been conducting a little homework
    on this. And he in fact bought me lunch simply because I
    stumbled upon it for him… lol. So let me reword this….

    Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to talk about
    this subject here on your internet site.
