Your child can help count out the potatoes and eggs. Once the eggs have cooked and cooled, the children can help peel them with their hands. The three–five year olds can help dice the potatoes: size and shape don’t matter. It will all taste good. And the kids will have the best time tossing the salad in the bowl.


  • 6-7 Desiree Potatoes peeled and halved

  • 1 cup whole-egg mayonnaise more if you prefer

  • 5 hardboiled Eggs peeled and chopped

  • 1 handful mixed fresh Herbs chives, continental parsley and basil


  • 1.

    Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water until tender. Set aside to cool before dicing.

  • 2.

    Mix the potatoes and mayonnaise and scatter the eggs and herbs over the top.
