1kgnew potatoes(cleaned and cut into large chunks)
150ggood quality mayonnaise
1tbspwhite wine vinegar
Place the potatoes in a large saucepan of salted boiling water and cook until al dente. Drain then set aside to steam dry in the colander and allow to cool.
Place the bacon under a medium-high grill and cook until crispy. Remove the bacon on to some kitchen roll and allow it to cool before breaking up into smaller pieces. Reserve any cooking liquids left in the bottom of the grill pan to add flavour to the salad dressing.
In a large mixing bowl, add the mayonnaise, cream, mustard, vinegar and a little of the reserved bacon cooking liquids and whisk well to combine. Add the freshly chopped chives, potatoes and half of the crispy bacon, stir well to combine.
Place the potato salad in a serving dish and sprinkle over the remaining crispy bacon pieces.
This salad can be served either still warm or cold. If making ahead of time, cover the dish with clingfilm and place in a refrigerator.
For a vegetarian version of this salad simply leave out the bacon.
