Hearty yet refreshing! This cucumber potato salad is perfect as a side dish and addition to any meal. Perfect for spring time, with hints of creamy mayonnaise, lemon and garlic. 

Cucumber and Potato salad

There is nothing better than a hearty bowl of potato salad. My dad used to make potato salad at every single barbecue that we would have. Honestly it was the perfect side dish! 

Although I loved the taste, I would always find traditional potato salad to be too rich, and make me feel sluggish and bloated after having it. That is why I came up with this cucumber and potato salad. Now don’t get me wrong, I would never take away the dear potato and replace it with cucumber! However, this salad recipe gives the perfect ratio of hearty, soft potatoes while still getting a refreshing crunch from the cucumber!  

Potato salad redefined 

Traditional potato salad is often packed with heaps of mayonnaise, sour cream, and some recipes even using margarine. Now, there is of corse nothing wrong with this, but like I said I often find these ingredients extremely heavy and bloating!

On top of it all, I find these ingredients extremely unnecessary! This potato salad is guaranteed to make your taste buds sing, without all these added extras! With spring onion, cucumber and hints of lemon. It gives a fresh and tangy combination that is SO delicious
