This is potato salad my way. That means no mayo. Instead I use whole grain mustard dressing mixed with fresh herbs to dress the potatoes which makes for a clean fresh taste that won’t weigh you down. Literally. Good news for your bikini/mankini body. Bring on summer!
8oz baby red potatoes – halved
1 garlic clove – minced
1/2 red onion – thinly sliced
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp green onion (scallions) – thinly sliced
1 tbsp whole grain mustard
1 garlic clove – peeled & chopped
1 tbsp fresh oregano
1/2 lemon – juiced
1/2 cup olive oil
S&P to taste
Pop the mustard, garlic, lemon juice and oregano in a food processor and with the machine running drizzle in the olive oil. Taste and season with S&P. Alternatively if you haven’t got a processor, add the mustard, minced garlic, chopped oregano and lemon juice in a bowl. Stir and whisk in the olive oil to lend. Taste and season. This recipe will make more than you need for this dish so don’t add it all in at once.
Preheat oven 400°F. Begin by tossing the potatoes in 1 tbsp olive oil, S&P and garlic. Place on a foiled oven tray in a single layer and roast for 20 minutes, approx or until cooked. Once roasted, let sit on tray for 5 minutes (they’ll be easier to peel off the foil and won’t stick). Meanwhile saute the onions in 2 tbsp on medium low heat for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally. You want to caramelise them and not burn them on a higher heat. By caramelizing them the natural sugar of the onions will come out and give your salad a delicious flavor. Once cooked take off the heat and let cool.
To assemble salad:
Place the potatoes, onions & scallions in a large mixing bowl. Add 1 tbsp of dressing to coat. Toss well. Taste and season with S&P. If you need more dressing go for it but keep in mind the potato salad should not be runny or drenched in dressing. A light coating is perfect.
