Ingredients

  • 1 kg Coliban potatoes , about 6 small, peeled and cut into medium sized pieces
  • 3 carrots, peeled and cut into medium sized pieces
  • 3 medium beetroot, boiled cut into medium sized pieces.
  • 3 hard-boiled eggs, cut into quarters or smaller pieces
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped, (about 1 cup)
  • cup mayonnaise
  • cup evaporated milk
  • ¾ tablespoon prepared English mustard
  • ¾ tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons salt, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • ½ cup cooked fresh green peas, cooled, for garnish (optional)

Instructions

2 - 3 hours prior to making the salad :

  • Place the potatoes and carrots in a suitable saucepan and cover with salted water and cook over medium-high heat for 20-25 minutes or until just tender (Do not overcook them). In another large saucepan place the trimmed beetroots and cover by 2cm with water. Cook for about 30 minutes over a medium-high heat until cooked. Peel and set aside to cool

To make the salad :

  • Into a large bowl place the potatoes, carrots, beetroot chunks and eggs.
  • In a separate bowl mix the onion, celery, mayonnaise, evaporated milk, mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper.
  • Incorporate the dressing mixture into the potatoes, mixing very gently so that the potatoes do not break apart.
  • Cover with a lid or plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours at least (overnight is even better).
  • Stir occasionally (gently) to blend the flavours and intensify the dark pink colour.

Notes

  • For Coliban potatoes substitute Russet potatoes.
  • In place of the celery try using apple or a 50/50 combination of apple and celery.
  • Canned baby beetroot can be substituted.
  • Whenever you are stirring or combining do so VERY GENTLY so as not to break up the potato pieces
