Pink Eye Potato and Salmon Salad
Daly Gourmet Potatoes
Recipe by Eloise Emmett with Susan Daly
8 medium Pink Eye potatoes
3 tablespoons sour cream
3 tablespoons whole egg mayonnaise
400 grams salmon (smoked or tinned)
1 small Spanish onion
1 tablespoon capers
2 tablespoons dill
1 tablespoon chives
salt and pepper
Scrub the potatoes and put them in a medium sized saucepan, cover with water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 15 minutes until the potatoes are cooked but firm. Drain the potatoes. When cool, cut into 1cm cubes.
To hard boil the eggs, bring a small saucepan of water to the boil, add the eggs and cook for 10 minutes. Cool, peel and cut into quarters.
Combine the sour cream and mayonnaise in a small bowl.
To assemble, arrange the potatoes, egg and salmon on a platter. Drizzle with the sour cream dressing, sprinkle with the finely sliced onion, capers and chopped herbs. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.
For an easy and impressive dinner party dish, this salad could be served with a baked salmon steak (omitting the smoked salmon from the salad). Alternatively, substitute tinned Australian salmon for an easy picnic dish or lovely lunchbox treat.
The distinctive flavour of Tasmanian Pink Eye potatoes cannot be beaten. New season Pink Eyes are available in Tasmanian over the summer months. If Pink Eye potatoes are not available, try other Daly Potato varieties such as Red Rascal or Purple Gem.
Dill is a hardy annual and both the leaves and seeds may be used in cooking. Dill grows easily from seed – but when you are planting, ensure your plants will have plenty of room to spread. If you sow just a few seeds and let the plants themselves go to seed, you will never have to worry about planting more!
