Potato Salad

added by martyn

The Cook made a great potato salad the other day – the potatoes came strait out of the ground and onto our plate. She grows a variety of spuds in the garden every year including some of the purple specimens which name escapes me.

Factor and always attract people’s attention and once they see the intriguing purple colour they simply just have to try them.
