This potato salad is an excellent fast and tremendous tasty addition to any meal that wants a starchy element.

It’s nice for warm-weather barbecues or alongside any protein all 12 months spherical.

I particularly love utilizing Dutch cream potatoes with their waxy texture. The way in which they break up and take in all of the flavours on this salad is simply scrumptious!

Elements (serves 4-6)

1kg child Dutch potatoes
1/4 cup roasted almonds
1 clove garlic
4 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup chopped contemporary dill

1/4 cup sliced spring onions
1/4 cup bunch finely sliced chives
Flake salt
Coarse floor black pepper


Boil your potatoes, with skins on, till very tender. Drain and peel off skins whereas nonetheless heat.

Break potatoes up into chunks – I strive to consider a mouthful measurement once I’m doing this! Costume them in half the olive oil, pink wine vinegar, lemon and a bit of flake salt. In case you do that whereas the potatoes are nonetheless heat, they may take in all the things higher.

Roughly blitz up your almonds in a meals processor, including the remainder of your olive oil. Keep in mind, you continue to need the almonds to have a crunchy texture so don’t take them too far.

As soon as your potatoes are a bit of cooler, stir via the greens and almond pesto.
