Preparations has started

Fresh squash (soon at least)

My boyfriend came asking me today if I had looked around the garage lately, he said there was something for me there.

I hadn’t, so we went looking, and there they were, small yellow squash 😀 Another few weeks and they should be ready for harvest I think.

Warm potato salad

Potato Salad

Potato Salad

This is a simple nice little potato salad, to be eaten warm. Works well with a spicy sausage.

The salad is best served right away, if you need to prepare in advance, all you really can do is boil and cut the potato into pieces. Then when it’s time to serve heat up the potato and poor over the dressing and rucola afterwards. It is rather nice when cold as well, but it is at its best lukewarm.

You need:

  • Potato
  • Red union
  • Rucola (or other type of salad that can be gently warmed, you could also use parsley)
  • Dijon mustard
  • Olive oil
  • Apple cider vinegar (or white wine vinegar)
  • water
  • salt and pepper
