A lovely fresh side dish. Posted for ZWT 6. From herbexpert.co.uk.
- 2 lbs small potatoes
- 2 garlic cloves
- 2 tablespoons rosemary
- 2 tablespoons parsley
- 2 tablespoons sage
- 2 tablespoons mint
- 8 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 lemon, zest and juice
- 6 herrings in brine (optional)
- salt and pepper
- Boil the potatoes and cut into bite-sized pieces. Crush the garlic and finely chop the herbs. Rinse and chop the herrings.
- While the potatoes are still warm, mix with the garlic, herbs, olive oil, lemon juice and zest. Leave covered for 10 minutes. Taste and add more oil or lemon juice as required. Season to taste, remembering that the herring has been in salted water. Add the herring to the mix and serve in a large bowl.
Everybody loved this! A nice change from heavier dressings. Love the herb combo. Made for ZWT6 by Zesty, Zany meeee!!
* Reviewed for ZWT6 Whine and Cheese Gangs visit to Scandinavia* Lovely fresh herbs for a potato salad. Tangy and savoury. Nice change to have a potato salad that doesn't have a creamy type dressing. All my family give 5 stars. Photos also being posted
