Potato and Spring Vegetable Salad

Author: Canadian Living

Fingerling potatoes are long, finger-shaped new potatoes, but other potatoes are just as suitable. Though lots of different vegetables go into this salad, they can all be prepared a day ahead for maximum ease.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb fingerling potato halved
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 3 fresh thyme
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh chervil
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
  • 3 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch carrots (about 6 oz/175 g)
  • 8 oz baby pattypan squash
  • 4 oz snow peas
  • 4 oz sugar snap peas
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup pea sprout

Method

In small roasting pan, toss together potatoes, butter, thyme and 1 tsp (5 mL) each of the salt and pepper. Cover and roast in 400°F (200°C) oven, stirring occasionally, until tender and light golden, about 40 minutes. (Make-ahead: Let cool. Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.)

Meanwhile, in large bowl, combine oil, parsley, basil, chervil, lemon rind and green onions; set aside. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 4 hours.)

Peel carrots. In saucepan of boiling salted water, cook carrots until tender-crisp, about 2 minutes. With slotted spoon, transfer to colander; drain. Add squash and snow and sugar snap peas to pan; cook until tender-crisp, about 1 minute. Drain. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 4 hours.)

Add carrots, snow and sugar snap peas, squash, potato mixture, lemon juice, and remaining salt and pepper to herb mixture; toss gently to coat. Arrange on serving platter. Garnish with pea sprouts.
