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:
2 large free range eggs
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
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.
