Review by Judith on 21st March, 2013
5 stars "Quick, easy, and delicious"

I bought this for my partner, who doesn't cook much, and it's been great. Easy enough for a non-cook, and delicious enough that the kids eat the meals.

Review by Karen on 24th January, 2013
4 stars "Fantastic cookbook. I love it"

The great thing with this cookbook is that you have most of the ingrediants in the pantry.

Seriously Good Potato Salad (pictured left)
There’s no need to wait for the weekend – with summer’s long evenings, a picnic for dinner is a nice way to break the midweek routine.

Prep 10 minutes | Cook 15 minutes | Serves 6

700g baby new potatoes, scrubbed
1 sprig mint
150g sliced salami
½ cup Heinz Seriously Good Mayonnaise
4 tsp wholegrain mustard
4–5 gherkins, sliced
4 radishes, sliced
3 spring onions, sliced handful Italian parsley leaves

  1. Cook potatoes in boiling, lightly salted water with mint, for about 10–15 minutes, or until just tender. Drain. Set aside to cool in a large bowl.
  2. In a non-stick frying pan, pan-fry salami until crisp. Remove from pan and add to potatoes.
  3. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise with mustard and gherkins.
  4. Add radishes and spring onions to potatoes. Season with freshly ground black pepper. Mix through mayonnaise mixture. Turn on to a serving platter and garnish with Italian parsley.

Tip: The dressing makes a great spread for sandwiches and rolls, and will go with all
your favourite summer fillings.
