Goat's cheese and potato salad

Potato salads get a bad rap thanks to the gluggy, mayonnaise-laden versions of yesteryear. Kick it new-school with our refreshing takes on the spud salad: see the potato salad with cucumber and burrata or the picnic-friendly salad of goat’s cheese and kipfler potatoes.

If in doubt, roast your taters for a warm golden potato salad with lime butter and coriander; or if you’re still hankering for those old-school creamy potato salads, done well, the Russian salad or German-style crushed potato salad with dill pickles should do the trick.
