If you don’t have potato and beans growing in your garden, borrow without asking from your parents or in-laws (elderly parents are the best to do this as they go to bed at 9pm so you don’t have to wear a balaclava), or consider orchestrating a swap with the neighbours, family or using your local sharing shed.
300g new or Agria potatoes
200g green beans
fresh mint, roughly chopped
RedKitchen Lemon and Turmeric dressing
½ red onion, thinly sliced
salt and cracked pepper
Cut potatoes into approx. 2cm cubes and boil until cooked.
Trim the plant end off the green beans, cut in half and blanch by plunging into boiling water for 30 seconds, drain and cool immediately with ice or under cold water.
Once the potatoes are cooked, cool for five minutes and then place in a bowl and douse with our RedKitchen Lemon and Turmeric Dressing.
Fold through the green beans, fresh mint and sliced red onion.
Note: Some versions of this salad work better if you roast potatoes and others boiled. The following recipes will guide you through it.
PS: Remember don’t wear your floral gumboots when raiding your elderly parents garden … it may be a giveaway on the security cameras.
