A simple potato salad that can go with any fish, chicken or a meat dish. Lovely to have at a garden party or at a barbecue. Best served chilled.
You will need;
750g – 1kg of new potatoes
1 medium size red onion and/or a bunch of spring onions approx. 100-125g
1/2 teaspoon of chilli flakes (optional)
1/8 teaspoon of ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon of salt
Approximately 50g fresh mint
Juice of 1 lemon
3 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 teaspoon sumak (this is optional). Sumak is a type of seasoning that is used in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cooking. It has a sharp lemony taste. I wouldn’t worry too much about not using it if you cannot find it.
Boil your potatoes, with or without the skin on (your choice). Personally for this dish I peel my potatoes. Once cooked, drain and leave to one side to cool down .Depending on the size of your potatoes either slice into two, or leave whole if they are small enough.
Slice your onion into little rings, halving them if you wish, (same goes for the spring onions) and place into your serving dish. When your potatoes have cooled down, add them to the onions with the rest of the ingredients. Gently stir to mix all the flavours together and serve as a side dish.
