Potato and Olive Salad Ingredients:

  • 8 large new potatoes
  • 3-4 tbsp. garlic-flavoured oil and vinegar dressing

  • 10-15 dry fleshed black Mediterranean olives

Cooking Instructions:

  • Cut the new potatoes into chunks and put them in a pan, pour in water to cover and add a pinch of salt.
  • Bring to boil, then reduce the heat and cook gently for about 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are just tender.
  • Drain well and leave in a colander to dry thoroughly and cool slightly.
  • When they are cool enough to handle, chop the potatoes and put them in a serving bowl.
  • Drizzle the garlic dressing over the potatoes.
  • Toss well and sprinkle with the chopped fresh coriander and chives, and black olives.
  • Chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving.
  • If you want spicy potato salad just add a pinch of ground cumin to spice up your salad.
