Serves
6-8 as a side dish

Potatoes and peas are two humble vegetables that work so well together in this lovely salad. The sweetness of maple syrup in the dressing adds a flavour that you don’t often get with potato – but trust me, it’s fresh and delicious.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient

For the salad

Quantity Ingredient
1kg new potatoes, scrubbed
1/2 teaspoon salt, for the cooking water
155 grams fresh or frozen peas

For the dressing

Quantity Ingredient
125ml olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus extra to serve
4 tablespoons fresh chives, finely chopped
4 tablespoons fresh mint leaves, finely chopped, plus extra to serve

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
2 large eggs, hard boiled and sliced
2 tablespoons chopped walnuts

Method

  1. Put the potatoes and salt in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil over medium–high heat and boil until not quite tender, about 12–15 minutes, testing with the point of a sharp knife. Add the peas and cook for a further 3 minutes, until the peas and potatoes are cooked and tender. Drain the potatoes and peas and refresh them under cold running water. Drain again and set aside to cool.
  2. To make the dressing, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, maple syrup, sea salt and pepper until emulsified. Stir in the chives and mint.
  3. To make the salad, cut the potatoes into 1 cm slices and put them in a large mixing bowl with the peas. Pour in the dressing and toss to combine.
  4. To serve, transfer the salad to a serving dish and garnish with the eggs, walnuts, mint leaves and pepper.
  5. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. This salad is best eaten on the day it is made.
