Royal Potato Salad

Royal Potato Salad 1500 833 R&G Fresh

Preparation Time

35-40 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 800g jersey royals, cleaned but not scrubbed
  • 15 quail eggs
  • 150g petit pois (blanched for 30 seconds and refreshed)
  • 60g parmesan, grated
  • 60g pine nuts
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 20g basil leaves
  • 20g parsley leaves, plus extra for garnishing
  • 1 bunch mint leaves, finely shredded
  • 200ml olive oil
  • ½ tsp white-wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper

How to make

1) Put the eggs in a saucepan, cover with cold water and bring to a boil: simmer for 30 seconds (semi-soft) to two minutes (hard-boiled), according to taste. Refresh in cold water and peel.

2) Cook the potatoes for 15-20 minutes until soft but not falling apart. Meanwhile, put the basil, parsley, parmesan, pine nuts and garlic in a food processor and blitz to a paste. Add the oil and pulse until you have a runny pesto.

3) As soon as they are cool enough to handle, cut the potatoes in two (they will absorb more flavour when hot) and toss with the pesto, peas, vinegar and sorrel. Mix well, even crush the potatoes slightly, so all the flavours mix.

4) Taste and adjust the seasoning, being generous with the pepper. Cut the eggs in half and fold into the salad. Garnish with parsley.
