Warm Potato Salad with Spinach

We love potatoes in our house, especially new potatoes; I say new potatoes are just the best thing ever since you don’t even have to peel them!

Warm potato salad


Now that the baby potato season is now in full swing I was pleased to be asked to try 'Taste the Difference' British Gems Baby New Potatoes which are available right now until the end of August from @Sainsburys - give them a go, we're now hooked on them.

Grown by British growers and freshly dug every day before being washed and packed and making their way to Sainsbury’s stores within 48 hours.

They have a lovely buttery flavour and are perfect simply boiled and served with a nice salad.

Just recently we've also been trying to eat more spinach and so for my recipe, I just had to include it in my warm salad with a gremolata dressing; extra vitamins and all that healthy stuff!
