Potato salad with young sweet peas
Hoooooooot! It’s so hot here in Slovenia these days. Well, yeah, I know, it’s summer so it’s supposed to be hot but I still find myself saying “it’s so hot”at least two times a day. Annoying, I know. On the bright side, that same thing inspired us to create a fresh, light lunch, full of late spring/early summer deliciousness. New potato salad with young sweet peas, sun-dried tomatoes and garlic scapes (these are optional, if they are hard to find in your area, replace them with chives). This salad is super easy to make, made in 35 minutes from start to finish and the dressing is pure perfection. A mixture of greek yogurt or sour cream, mustard and lemon juice. Serve it with salmon, chicken or plain and simple: just as it is. Enjoy.

Lets get cooking!

METHOD

  • Cook the potatoes

    Clean the potatoes (don't peel them), cut large ones in half. Place a pot filled with salted water over medium-high heat. When the water starts to boil, add the potatoes and cook them for about 5 minutes. After about a minute, add the sweet peas and cook them for about one minute. Remove the sweet peas after a minute, then drain the potatoes and leave them sit for about 5 minutes in a sieve.

  • Bake the potatoes

    Line a baking dish with parchment paper. Add the potatoes, season with pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 20 minutes at 240 °C / 460 °F.

  • Make a salad dressing

    Add mustard, greek yogurt or sour cream, olive oil, juice of one lemon, salt and pepper to a bowl. Mix everything together using an immersion blender. For a more runny dressing, add water.

  • Serve

    Thinly slice garlic scapes (or chives) and sun-dried tomatoes. Add them to a serving bowl along with baked new potatoes, young sweet peas. Add the homemade salad dressing and combine everything together. Serve or add other seasonal veggies and fresh herbs (like coriander or parsley). Enjoy.
