Here’s the thing, I am not the worlds biggest fan of mayonnaise base potato salad. Quite frankly, I typically hate it. The recipe I am about to give you, is one of the few mayo potato salads I actually like. Scratch that… I totally loooove this one!
Mayo potato salad, or how we call it, maionese de batata, is one of the dishes you will certainly find at a Brazilian barbecue party. It is a must side dish, alongside rice, molho a campanha (Brazilian Salsa), and farofa (which is a whole conversation we will have another time).
Sold? Knew it!!
So… What’s With This Mayo Potato Salad?
Carrots, my friends. Carrots have always been an inevitable ingredient in all potato salads I’ve had growing up in Brazil. The simplest version has just potatoes, carrots, mayo and some salt and pepper. Sometimes we get sassy and also add chopped olives, shaved onions, some peas, parsley… All variations are seriously soooooo good!!!!!
On your next bbq party, make sure to try this delicious maionese de batata. Take a picture and share with me on Instagram by tagging me or using #cookingwithaline I want to see your beautiful dish!!
