This delicious pea pesto potato salad is a great way to enjoy new potatoes and sneak in extra vegetables at the same time. It feels like a really summery dish due to the fresh, light flavours used and would make the perfect addition to a barbecue on a hot day.
This is a great side to make if you have any vegetables that need using up as the spring greens can be substituted for spinach and kale instead, making it great to help fight food waste. It is also a great dish to make if, like me, you struggle to cook the right amounts of food and always have leftovers as it’ll give you something to use those extra potatoes up in!
This pesto potato salad side dish may seem like a time consuming one to make because you have to boil the potatoes and peas first, however, both of these can be done in advance if you were short on time. This would allow you to quickly throw this together right before you need it which is much more convenient.
