Potato and bean salad with lemon yoghurt dressing

To serve 1

240g potatoes - unpeeled and cut into wedges
150g green beans, trimmed and cut into 3 cm lengths
1 cup baby rocket leaves
50 g (1/2) small red onion sliced thinly

Lemon Yoghurt Dressing
1/2 cup sheep milk yoghurt
1 tspn finely grated lemon rind
1 tbspn fresh lemon juice
1 tbspn finely chopped fresh flat leaf parsley

Boil, steam or microwave potato and beans seperately, until tender, drain. Rinse beans under cold water, drain.
Meanwhile combine ingredients for lemon yoghurt dressing in small bowl
Place potato and beans in medium bowl with rocket and onion, toss gently top combine.
Serve salad drizzled with dressing.

And of course I did not follow the recipe slavishly -

  • I used goats milk yohurt, as I did not have sheeps yoghurt
  • baby spinach instead of rocket as I did not have rocket
  • corriander instead of parsley, by mistake - was a good mistake and
  • doubled it to feed both of us.

just stick to the parsley - basil would work too if you want more flavour!
