Be careful when using the knife. There is no reason why you can’t use more potatoes just make sure you up the egg mayonnaise.

! Slicing and dicing tip, if you cut the potatoes in half and then score a line into the potato half across its length down the middle but not cut it completely then score it in this manner width ways creating a grid. Then if you cut it from the top down in layers one inch deep you get cubes effortlessly.

i) Peel the potatoes.

ii) Slice the potatoes into small pieces I tend to aim for inch cubes.

iii) Cut your chives/spring onions into ½ an inch pieces and put the pieces to one side.

iv) Place the potato pieces into a saucepan of water.

Yeah potato salad is ace :). Think the shaking step really helps mix ingredients and kind of tenderise the potatoes a bit, plus it is a lot less effort than stirring and I did this when I was a student lol.
Big fan of potato salad! Sounds like a great recipe!
