Nan's home made potato salad


This is a recipe that my nan used to make, and we always had it served with schnitzels, rice and salad. I used to love our meals as a family, and though we lost both my nan and granddad in the last 3 years, they are well remembered, especially when we recreate their recipes.


  • 15-18 Baby potatoes
  • 6 Eggs
  • 150g Peas
  • 2 large Onions
  • Mayonnaise to taste

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 45 min
Yields: Serves 8-10


  1. Boil the potatoes, peas and eggs separately, making sure they are all well cooked (but not burnt!).
  2. Drain them, and add cold water to cool them. Alternatively, cook them an hour before you need them and leave to cool.
  3. While these are cooling, you can chop the onions as finely as you like them - I like them a bit chunkier than others, its a personal thing! Pop them into a large mixing bowl.
  4. Once cooled, drain and add the peas to the bowl. You then need to drain the potatoes, and slice them roughly (around 0.5cm thick). Add these to the bowl.
  5. Next, drain and shell the eggs. Slice them in half lengthways, then widthways (again around 0.5cm thick). Add to the bowl, and give it a good mix.
  6. Finally, you need to add mayonnaise. The amount you add depends on the taste you like, so add a couple of spoons, give it a stir and taste it! I put a fair amount in, so everything is completely coated.
