Avocado and Rocket Potato Salad

avocado and rocket potato salad

This creamy yet fresh tasting potato salad is perfect as a side dish or to take to a summer BBQ. Even if you don't follow a vegan diet, it's a wonderful alternative to classic potato salad as the avocado sauce is full of "good" fats, making it a healthy option for those watching their cholesterol. Plus, it celebrates seasonal British produce thanks to the inclusion of Jersey Royal potatoes.

Three great health benefits: beneficial for heart health, promotes healthy skin, good source of fibre

Serves 3-4

Ingredients:
450g Jersey Royal potatoes, washed and chopped in half
1 large handful of rocket
1 ripe, medium avocado
Juice of 1 lemon
3 sprigs fresh dill
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 & 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
Sea salt and black pepper, to season

Method:
1) Place the potatoes in a large saucepan with plenty of water and a generous pinch of salt. Bring to the boil and cook for 10 minutes, until a knife goes through easily. Drain and set aside to cool completely (I tend to do this the night before I want to make the salad).
2) Place the avocado, lemon juice, dill, olive oil, mustard and salt & pepper in a food processor and whizz together until smooth.
3) Pour the avocado sauce onto the potatoes and add the rocket. Stir together to thoroughly combine.
