Simple but tasty potato and egg salad that anyone can make

A really easy recipe for you this time.  It’s almost not a recipe at all.  But I like salad.  And I like potatoes.  And I like easy.  And this recipe combines all of the above.

Feel free to add or remove as you see fit.  I know my mum used to put things like celery and gherkins in her potato salad, but my current family wouldn’t eat that.  So I just make it with eggs, potatoes (obviously) and some mayonnaise.  And some salt and pepper to taste.  And if you make it with some Whole30 compliant mayonnaise, it’s a great side to whatever other meat and veggies you plan to have that meal!

Simple.  Easy as pie … mmm, pie.  That’s for another day!
