Nothing beats a classic potato salad, especially one that's filled with crunchy pieces of bacon and boiled eggs. This makes a perfect picnic or buffet dish as it packs up well and can be made the day before. Plus, it’s gluten-free and takes just 25 minutes to whip up. 

  1. Roughly chop the unpeeled potatoes and boil for 20 mins. Meanwhile, boil the eggs for 10 mins, drain and let cool, then peel and quarter.
  2. Mix the mayonnaise with the Dijon mustard. Fry the chopped bacon for 5-6 mins until crisp.
  3. Drain the potatoes, put in a serving dish, top with the eggs, bacon, mayo, chives and a twist of black pepper.
