Potato salad is one of those Aussie picnic favourites that is loved by all. There's just something deliciously comforting about hearty boiled potatoes tossed with rich, creamy mayonnaise. This timeless staple goes well alongside grilled sausages, lamp chops and roast beef sandwiches. And the best part? The flavour variations are limitless. We've pulled together our favourite spins on the humble dish, some which include bacon, others with salmon, prawns and scallops. Dig in!
If you want to do something extra special for your loved ones, organise a homemade picnic and go enjoy it sitting on a rug in a park, at the beach or in your backyard. You can make it as gourmet as you like, as these recipes include everything from sandwiches and pies, to salads and quiches. You'll also get a dessert recipe or two, like our fudgy brownies or little apple pies. There's a couple of vegetarian recipes too, so you can cater to every taste bud.
Bring the flavour of Mexico to your next drinks party with this authentic spicy dip. Jalapenos, a member of the capsicum family, have quite a kick so you may want to keep this one out of reach of the kids!
