Potato, gremolata & pine nut salad
Prep 25 mins | Cook 15 mins | Serves 6
750g baby kestrel or new potatoes*
2 green onions (shallots), trimmed and thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, finely crushed
3⁄4 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
2 tsp lemon zest
1⁄3 cup reduced fat whole egg mayonnaise
1⁄4 cup reduced fat Greek-style natural yoghurt
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tbs toasted pine nuts
*Choose similar-sized potatoes so they cook evenly
STEP 1 Place potatoes into a large saucepan of cold salted water. Cover and bring to the boil over high heat. Reduce heat and gently boil, uncovered, for 12-15 minutes (depending on size) until just tender. Drain and refresh in cold water. Set aside to fully cool. Once cool, halve potatoes lengthways and place into a large bowl. Add green onions.
STEP 2 To make the gremolata, combine garlic, parsley and lemon zest in a small bowl.
STEP 3 Combine mayonnaise, yoghurt, lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl. Stir mixture through potatoes. Gently fold through pine nuts and two-thirds of the gremolata. Spoon into a serving bowl, sprinkle with remaining gremolata and serve.
