No BBQ is complete without a potato salad. A fry cry from the diced potatoes drowning in mayonnaise, this warm potato salad has creamy potatoes soaking up a fresh and tangy dressing, peppery rocket and crispy bacon for crunch.


  • 10-12 potatoes of choice (kipfler, Dutch cream or sebago all work well)

  • 2 cups rocket leaves

  • 1 spring onion, sliced inc. green part

  • ¼ cup fresh chives, chopped

  • 2 Tbsp baby capers

  • ½ cup fresh parsley, chopped

  • 6 sliced of bacon, grilled until crisp

  • Dressing 

  • 1 Tbsp Dijon or seeded mustard

  • Juice of 1-2 lemons

  • Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper


  • 1.

    Wash and cut your potatoes into bit sized pieces then steam, boil or roast them until tender

  • 2.

    While still warm, place them in large salad bowl

  • 3.

    To make the dressing, mix together the olive oil, mustard and lemon juice, then pour over the potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Set aside while they soak up some of the flavours

  • 4.

    Stir through the shallots, chives, parsley, capers, rocket and bacon

  • 5.

    Serve the salad in the bowl
