The Best Potato Salad

delic ella potato salaFOR THE SALAD:

1kg of new potatoes
150g of asparagus

2 avocados
5 spring onions
10g of chives
5g of mint
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 lemon, juiced
Lots of salt and pepper


3g of chives
1 spring onion


Half or quarter any of the larger potatoes, then place them all in a pan of cold water with a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil and simmer for 18-20 minutes until cooked through.

While the potatoes cook, finely chop the spring onions, chives and mint. Remove the woody bits from the end of the asparagus and roughly chop the stalks on the diagonal.

Peel and de-stone the avocados, then add the flesh to a food processor with the lemon juice, olive oil and lots of salt and pepper. Blend until totally smooth then add the chopped chives, mint and spring onions and pulse a few times.

When the potatoes are cooked through, add the chopped asparagus and cook for a further one minute, then remove from the heat and drain. Leave the potatoes and asparagus to cool before stirring through the avocado sauce (you can run them under cold water to speed up the process).

Finely chop the remaining spring onion and chives and sprinkle over the potato salad as decoration before serving.
