Three Potato Salad

Now, in a highly creative mood I experiment with a three-potato salad - amadumbe, potatoes and sweet potatoes with homemade mayonnaise, boiled eggs and grated onion. A slight variation to the original combination, which works well and adds interest to every mouthful.

Yields: 4

Ingredients:

*Mayonnaise

3 Egg Yolks

1 clove Garlic, crushed

10 ml Dijon Mustard

10 ml Water

125 ml Olive Oil

125 ml Sunflower Oil

Freshly squeezed Lemon Juice to taste

Fine Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper

*Potato Salad

240 g steamed Amadumbe, peeled and cut into even sizes

240 g normal boiled Potatoes, peeled and cut into even sizes

240 g boiled Sweet Potatoes, peeled and cut into even sizes

Fine Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper

½ medium sized Onion, grated

2 hard-boiled Eggs, grated

Method:

Mayonnaise

1) Whisk the yolks, garlic, mustard and water until pale yellow

2) Add the oils very slowly to this mixture to allow it to emulsify. If added too quickly it will split

2) Finish with lemon juice, salt and pepper - set side

Potato Salad

3) Mix all the potato salad ingredients together and finish with half of the mayonnaise amount. Season well and serve

Please post your comments and any food-related questions below.

I look forward to hearing from you.
