Green Potato Salad
Method
  • Wash and scrub potatoes well, under running water, using a scrub brush. Boil them in a pot with salted water, until they are soft and you can prick them with a fork.
  • Remove from heat and do not allow them to cool. Peel them carefully while they are hot and cut in to small cubes.
  • In a pan, sauté the finely chopped bacon over low heat.
  • Add half of the finely chopped onion and sauté for a few more minutes. Add the garlic last and sauté. If the bacon has released too much fat, remove it from the pan, but reserve about 2 tablespoons of it.
  • Add the potatoes to the pan and stir them around so they can pick up all the aromas and flavors of the bacon and onion, and to soak up some of the bacon fat. Potatoes need to be warm in order to pick up other flavors from other ingredients, not cold. That’s their biggest secret!

           For the dressing:

  • Mix all the ingredients together in a small blender or food processor. Allow the dill to disperse throughout the sauce and spread its rich green color.
  • Put the potatoes in a bowl and mix well with the dressing.
  • Top with finely chopped spring onions and celery.
Tip
You can also add some broccoli florets or string beans to add more flavor!!
