Spring Green Potato Salad with herbal oil and peas


What you'll need:

  • 1 kg potatoes
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 bunch fresh dill
  • 1 bunch fresh parsley
  • 50 ml olive oil
  • 1 splash fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon coarse mustard
  • 150 g fresh or frozen peas
  • Herbs for topping, e.g. red oxalis

And here’s how to make it:

  1. Boil the potatoes for 7 minutes and let them sit in the hot water for the same amount of time. Take them out of the water and let them cool off completely, then halve them.
  2. Defrost or peel your peas and set aside.
  3. Make your herb oil: Blend garlic, parsley, dill, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper with a blender so you’ll reach a consistent mass. Stir in the mustard.
  4. Mix potatoes together with herbal oil and peas. Sprinkle with salt and freshly ground pepper. Top with herbs.
  5. Remember to tag your own creations with #eatgrim or @eatgrim on Instagram!
