Atlantic Salmon and potato salad with fresh herbs

December 07, 2018 1 Comment

As a busy mum I love preparing nourishing, tasty and substantial salads with minimum fuss.

I do encourage you to make your own mayonnaise, you know exactly the ingredients your using and can adjust to suit your taste, this is of course if time permits. Please give it a go at least once. Should you purchase ready made mayonnaise choose a quality brand no numbers and minimum ingredients.

I have shared the recipe and method previously as well as a facebook live.

If you prefer to learn visually here is the link to the video.


Click on the photo to take you directly to the recipe and method. Ideally this is what you should see on the ingredients listing on prepared store bought commercial mayonnaise.
