Potato Salad with Fresh Peas
Potato Salad with Fresh Peas
  • New Potatoes
  • Peas
  • Tarragon vinegar
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Dijon mustard
  • Finely Chopped Onion
  • Salt and Pepper seasoned to taste
  • The experience of plucking the first fresh Peas from the vine and eating them raw, straight from the pod, is one of those natural highs that gardeners live for. A meal of freshly dug new Potatoes is another. This simple recipe combines the two: steam new Potatoes in their skins until just tender. Leaving the skins on, slice about 1/2 inch thick. While the Potatoes are still warm, toss them with a dressing of one part tarragon vinegar and four parts extra-virgin olive oil and a touch of Dijon mustard. Stir in the raw Peas and a little finely chopped Onion. Then season with salt, pepper and a few tarragon leaves, snipped into the salad with sharp scissors. Mix gently and serve at room temperature.
