Potato Asparagus Salad

This simple recipe for a potato asparagus salad gives you a super-looking plate of food that is great as a starter or appetizer, as a side dish, or even as a snack.

In this recipe, I have used green asparagus tips and some Maris Piper potatoes, as that is what I could find in my local Aldi supermarket. But you can also use white asparagus if you prefer, or even some tasty new potatoes –  use whatever you can find locally.

Inspiration for this potato asparagus salad recipe

This recipe was inspired by a similar appetizer I had in the beautiful Haute-Savoie region of the Alps in France, very recently. The dish, using cabbage instead of asparagus, was served as a starter to a three-course plat du jour and was just fantastic. 

I am sure the chef there used a homemade creamy sauce or mayonnaise instead of Hellmann’s, but the idea was fairly similar, though they used some rather fancy French words to describe the meal!

He also used a different sort of grater that managed to produce some long strands of egg yolk, but the taste will be similar.

I thought I would try this with asparagus instead of cabbage and the result was excellent. You could also try with roasted asparagus if you prefer.

I may try making this with some cabbage next time instead of asparagus, and using some green beans for colour instead.

Serve hot or cold

You can serve this dish hot, or make it upfront and keep it in the fridge to serve it cold if you prefer.  Either way, it is very tasty side dish, starter or even an easy snack you can prepare at any time of the day.

This goes very well with some cold leftover roast chicken breast or some tasty smoked salmon.

Now that the sun has finally come out after a very long winter, I think we may be trying this recipe more often in the coming months.

Potato Asparagus Salad

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Additional Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

This recipe for potato asparagus salad is great as a starter, appetiser or as a side dish. Serve with cold roast chicken or smoked salmon

Ingredients

  • 3 potatoes (I used some Maris Pipers)
  • 2 eggs
  • 50g asparagus tips (about 5 green asparagus tips, or two white asparagus tips)
  • 3 Spring onions
  • 2 tbsp Hellmann's Real Mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp salted butter, melted in microwave
  • 2 tsp grated parmesan
  • Black Pepper

Instructions

  1. Peel the potatoes and boil for about 15 minutes, or until cooked. Do not allow them to fall apart. Use the same pan of boiling water to boil the eggs for 10 minutes.
  2. Remove the eggs, and run them under a cold water tap. Then place in the freezer to cool.
  3. Drain the potatoes and allow to air cool.
  4. While the potatoes are boiling, steam the asparagus in the microwave or on the hob. In the microwave it takes about 3 minutes in my Sistema steamer.
  5. At the same time make the sauce. Whisk the Hellmann's, the lemon juice, the melted butter and the mustard together in a bowl.
  6. When the potatoes have cooled sufficiently, slice them thinly into coins. Then cut the asparagus into suitably sized pieces and arrange on a plate with the potatoes.
  7. Cover the potato and asparagus with the lemony mayo sauce, then add some freshly grated black pepper, and sprinkle some grated parmesan on top.
  8. Remove the egg from the freezer and remove the yolk from the whites.
  9. Then finish off by adding some slices of spring onion and some grated egg yolk to the top.

Notes

This salad can be served warm or cold, depending on the accompaniment. I have served this up with smoked salmon or some cold roast chicken.
