Summer Fruity Potato Salad
Prep time: About 10 minutes
Cook time: About 15 minutes
500g new potatoes (salad)
1 Ripe mango, peeled and sliced
4 Spring onions, sliced
100g Strawberries, hulled and quartered
4 Gem lettuces, quartered
For the dressing:
100ml Fruit smoothie, eg. Kiwi, apple & lime
2tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
Scrub the potatoes, cut each in half lengthways and then in half lengthways again.
Place potatoes in a large plastic microwave proof bowl, rinse them with water, drain and cook for seven to eight minutes covered with a plastic plate or cling film. (The potatoes will cook quicker if not packed too densely – bigger bowl in thinner layer works best!).
Or you can place the potatoes in a pan with just enough boiling water to cover them. Put the lid on, bring to the boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until tender, drain.
Allow the potatoes to cool slightly. Season. Toss together the mango, onions and strawberries.
Place lettuce onto plates or bowls. Top with potatoes and fruit, then drizzle over dressing.
