This Warm Baby Potato and Asparagus Salad is one of my favourite late spring/early summer salads, when fresh asparagus is everywhere and the early season potatoes begin to hit the shelves. Of course, outside of asparagus season, this salad can still be enjoyed with just the potatoes or with peas or any type of green beans.
This salad is also perfect for barbecues. I toss both the potatoes and the asparagus on the barbie with the dressing all ready on the condiment table. Then, when the vegetables are done, either everything goes into a bowl to be tossed, or each person can help themselves to the barbecued vegetables, and top with a drizzle of the dressing.
The potatoes can also be finished off in the oven or under a grill (broiler), if you prefer. All we are doing, is adding some charred notes to the potatoes, it makes for a more delicious end result, than just boiled potatoes.
I’ve added a teaspoon of mayonnaise to the dressing for just a touch of indulgence. If truth be told, it doesn’t need it and is perfectly delicious without.
