Trying to replicate a store bought potato salad, I found that my creation worked better, tasted nicer and was a more affordable option. I decided to spice up the plain traditional potato mayo mixture so I added crispy bacon pieces, red onion, Paul Newman’s Own Mayonnaise, basil pesto and spring onion The salad is a perfect accompaniment to a great kiwi summer barbie!
