Warm Cypriot Salad

Warm Cypriot Salad

Cypriot New Potatoes are available from Tesco now until the end of March.

I am delighted, these potatoes are scrumptious.

They are available in 750g packs or loose and they don’t need peeling which is always a bonus! These Cypriot New Potatoes are just so versatile, you can boil them, steam them, roast them or even bake them.

These potatoes are grown and harvested, using traditional methods on small family farms in Cyprus.  They taste earthy and creamy and they are smooth and delicious.  I love to eat seasonally and these are just perfect right now.

These yummy Cypriot New Potatoes are a dream to cook with.

Warm Cypriot Salad

I decided to make a warm Cypriot salad with them, featuring ingredients typically used in salads in Cyprus. I wanted it to be warm because its chilly here,  but the dish is also full of sunshine.  It is a taste sensation and packed full of goodness and vibrant with colour.

To make this dish for 2 you need:

 

Ingrediants

2 large free range eggs

75g Asparagus

6 amber and rosso vine ripened tomatoes

6-8 Cypriot new potatoes

75g of goats cheese

Sour dough loaf

Small tub of pink slaw

 

For the dressing

2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon chopped  dill

 

Method

Place potatoes in boiling water and simmer for 10m

Place Asparagus in boiling water and simmer for 3 mins

Place eggs in boiling water and simmer for 7 mins

 

 

Combine ingredients for dressing and pour on new potatoes

Chop tomatoes and cube cheese

Combine all ingredients and serve on toasted sour dough.

Serve warm with spoonfuls of pink slaw

 

This is a super simple dish to recreate and adapt to your own preferences. Maybe you could add some quorn or some halloumi or some orange peppers? Perhaps you could roast the potatoes as is often done in Cypriot salads?

If you do have a go please let me know how it turned out  And remember, these potatoes are only in store till the end of March.
