Jami Sorrento was our June Daring Cooks hostess and she chose to challenge us to celebrate the humble spud by making a delicious and healthy potato salad. The Daring Cooks Potato Salad Challenge was sponsored by the nice people at the United States Potato Board, who awarded prizes to the top 3 most creative and healthy potato salads. A medium-size (5.3 ounce) potato has 110 calories, no fat, no cholesterol, no sodium and includes nearly half your daily value of vitamin C and has more potassium than a banana!
As you may have noticed from the lack of posts, I am still feeling a bit overwhelmed with everything for the move, work and trying to find a new job. So, for this challenge I actually just made one of my favourite potato salads which is from Jamie Oliver's first book - The Naked Chef.
It is simply potatoes mixed with salsa verde. Steve made salsa verde for me on an early date and the combination of capers and anchovies is one of his favourites so this always makes me think of him.
I served it warm with pan fried sea bass and then the next day we had the cold leftovers alongside some barbecued meat. It doesn't look very pretty in the picture. As you know, I'm not very good at pretty presentation. It does taste fresh and tangy, though.
