When I make this salad I don’t peel the potatoes as its quicker and the skins have additional nutritional value. However, if you prefer you can peel the potatoes.

We use Ruby Lou potatoes as they’re easily available for us, but any type of potato suitable for boiling will do. E.g. Desiree, Dutch Cream, Kipfler.
