Add 200 g Mayonnaise and mix well.

Leave for at least an hour before serving to allow the potatoes to absorb some of the creaminess of the mayonnaise.


You can replace the cervelas with another kind of meat or sausage of your choice, but still cut into small dice. For a vegetarian version, just leave it out.

You can replace the mayonnaise with a rémoulade dressing if you prefer. As for all salad recipes, this can be varied to suit your taste (a little more of this or a little less of that).


A day or 2 in the fridge if the bowl is covered with plastic film .
