Poslfit Recipes: Potato Salad
500 g small new potatoes, scrubbed, larger ones halved
250 g green beans, trimmed
100 g sliced red onions (half a large onion)
100 g black olives (I like nicoises)
5 pieces sundried tomatoes in oil, cut finely
125 g medium Cheddar cheese
1 tbsp good mustard (preferably made by Anton Kozlik)
100 mL extra virgin olive oil
1 T balsamic vinegar
1 clove garlic, crushed
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Bring a medium and small saucepan each full of salted water to
a boil. Blanch the beans (3 minutes), cook the potatoes
(15-20 minutes until done). Drain the beans, run under cold
Combine onions, olives, tomatoes in a medium mixing bowl.
Make a dressing from the mustard, olive oil, vinegar, garlic,
salt and pepper. Add to the onions etc.
Put warm potatoes in a salad bowl, pass a large knife back and
forth through them if they look too big, but remember that they'll
tend to fall apart when you stir them.
Combine with the contents of the mixing bowl.
Mix thoroughly, let stand to let the potatoes absorb flavours.
Chop beans coarsely, cube the cheese, mix with rest of salad
just before serving.
