Jersey Royal Potato Salad with Asparagus and Cherry Tomatoes

Method

  • Cook the Jersey Royals in lightly salted boiling water for 15-20 minutes, until tender.
  • While the potatoes are cooking, toss the asparagus in 1 tbsp of olive oil. Preheat a char-grill pan or the grill and cook the asparagus, in batches if necessary, until tender.
  • Put the spring onions into a salad bowl and add the lemon juice or vinegar, olive oil and mustard. Leave to marinate for 5-10 minutes.
  • Drain the Jersey Royals and put them into the salad bowl, stirring them gently to coat in the dressing. Leave to cool for 10 minutes, then add the asparagus and tomatoes. Season and mix gently, the serve, scattered with basil leaves.

TIP:

Use fine green beans instead of asparagus for a change.
