Warm Potato Salad with Spinach Asparagus Tomatoes and Gremolata Dressing

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!

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!
Print Recipe

To serve two you will need:
Olive oil
350g British Gem New Potatoes - cooked, sliced and well drained
about 8-10 asparagus tips
145g baby plum tomatoes - halved
a handful of washed and ready to eat spinach
sea salt and black pepper to season

Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and add the asparagus.  Cook while stirring for a minutes or two before adding in the potatoes.

Now add the tomatoes and season with a little salt and pepper.

Once everything is nicely cooked add the spinach and cover.  Cook for a minute or so and then gently stir in the gremolata and serve straight away.

For the Gremolata:
Chopped fresh flat leaf parsley - enough to make 3 tablespoons
1 fat clove of garlic - finely chopped
zest of 1 lemon
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper - to taste
Mix together in a bowl just before serving. 

British Gems are ideal for boiling or steaming, roasting and even baking. Whether you crush, dice, or roast them it has to be said British Gems taste delicious. We all know that the most of the vitamins can be found in the skins of potatoes so I always leave the skin on new potatoes. Leaving the skin on means less work and that surely can only be a good thing; just a quick wash in cold water and they’re ready to cook.
