The waitress explained how they made it and as soon as I got back to the UK I set about trying to re-create the recipe. I must say I am particularly pleased with the result which has now become my signature, bring to any event potato salad!
You can boil any potatoes but the new, waxy type are best. I usually boil about about 1.5kg. There is no need to peel them but that is optional. Once boiled let the potatoes cool.
In the meantime I fry up some smoked streaky bacon until crispy then put that aside to cool on a piece of kitchen towel to help absorb any bacon fat.
Initially I whipped the Philadelphia (cream cheese) until thick.
I hope you enjoy this mayonnaise free potato salad as much as our family do. Please leave a comment below to let me know what you think. Will you try it this way?
