Potato Salad

The forecast for Melbourne, Australia is 43 degrees Celsius today. Perfect weather for potato salad.

6 medium potatoes
310 gm tin of corn kernels
1/4 C mayonnaise
1 Tblspn Red Kelly Tasmania’s Basil and Garlic dressing (you could use French dressing, or another flavoured dressing if you prefer).
Chopped spring onions, chives and salt and pepper to taste

Boil the potoatoes in their skins until tender.

Once cool, peel the potatoes and roughly dice them into a large bowl. Add the drained corn and remaining ingredients and stir.

Serves six.


The most important thing to know about making pancakes is that if you don’t wipe the bench of any spills and wash out the bowl, beaters, spatula and any other utensils you have used to make the batter immediately after use, the left-over batter will harden and stick to everything like concrete, and you will be chipping away at it for ages in an attempt to clean up.

2 eggs

1/4 C brown sugar

2/3 C milk

1 C self raising flour

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Pour about half a cup of mixture at a time into a buttered frypan, turning with a spatula when bubbles come through the pancakes.
