I came across this recipe for potato salad which instead of using mayonnaise has a dressing made with honey.
In my other potato salads, I use starchy potatoes but with this dressing the firmer more waxy potatoes work best.
500g of boiled or steamed baby salad potatoes (chopped into quarters if large)
2 tablespoons of capers
1 green apple such as a Granny Smith (chopped into small pieces)
Chopped chives or the green part of spring onions
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 tablespoons of runny honey
1 tablespoons of white wine or cider vinegar
1 tablespoons of made-up Mustard
Salt & ground black pepper
Garnish – to serve
A few handfulls of torn baby spinach
50g of chopped walnuts
Mix all the salad ingredients together and place in a bowl.
Mix all the dressing ingredients together – use a little whisk.
Mix the salad with the dressing.
The salad is best made several hours before serving to let the dressing infuse into the potatoes.
Add the garnish just before serving to prevent the leaves becoming soggy.
The dressing is so delicious – I will be trying it out on other salads and vegetables .
