Potato Salad With Chorizo & Garden Greens
I have never been a fan of potato salad. It usually is a fixture at BBQs and but it is the one salad I always leave off my plate. Not any more….If you need a salad recipe for an Australia Day event, this is the one.
This week after picking some herbs from my garden I was sorting through my pantry and the fridge for some dinner inspiration. I had some nice Nadine potatoes waiting to be used and decided to attempt to make a potato salad. We have eaten this twice in the last 4 days for dinner as a side dish, everyone loved it so much I had requests to make it again immediately!
- 10 small potatoes - peeled and quartered
- ½ Chorizo sausage - sliced thinly
- 3 baby leeks (or 1 regular sized) - thinly chopped
- 12 fresh basil leaves
- 6 fresh sage leaves - chopped
- 10 fresh chives
- handful of fresh parsley leaves
- rocket or baby spinach leaves - 100 grams approximately
- 2 eggs-boiled, peeled and sliced
- ½ cup of egg mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons seeded mustard
- ½ lemon - juiced
- pepper to season
- Parmesan Cheese shaved
- Put a pot of water onto boil and add the diced potatoes when the water is boiling.
- Boil until the potatoes are cooked through-approximately 15 minutes. Test with a skewer
- When the potatoes are cooked, drain the water and set aside
- Add the chorizo and leek to a fry pan and cook until fragrant and the oil starts to excrete from the chorizo.
- Add the potatoes into the pan to soak up the flavor of the chorizo. Turn off the heat and allow to cool
- To a serving bowl add the chopped herbs and the spinach/rocket, and sliced boiled eggs
- Add the cooled potatoes, chorizo and leek and mix through
- In a small bowl mix the mayonnaise, lemon juice and seeded mustard
- Add ½ of the dressing to the salad. Add the remaining half if you think it is required after mixing the first half through the salad.
- Serve with freshly ground pepper and lots of shaved Parmesan cheese
- Take the address of this blog, and a copy of the recipe to your next BBQ - you are sure to be asked for it 🙂
Leave the chorizo out for a vegetarian option
