Asparagus and Spring Onion Potato Salad Recipe

By Edited Dec 11, 2013 1 2

This salad is a great addition to any barbeque or dinner party. It combines two very popular ingredients to make a unique salad as well as an appetizer.

Here's how you make it:


-2lbs small new white or red-skinned potatoes, scrubbed but not peeled, cut into 1 inch (2.5 cm) chunks (1kg)
-2 tbsp lemon juice (30 ml)
- 1/2 tsp sale (2ml)
- 1/2 tsp pepper (1ml)
-1 lb asparagus, trimmed and cut into 2-inch (5cm) Pieces (500g)
- 1/4 cup real mayonnaise (50ml)
-2 tbsp plain yogurt (30ml)
-1 tsp grainy Dijon mustard (5ml)
-4 green onions, thinly sliced (4)
-1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley (15ml)


Place the potatoes in a steamer basket set over boiling water.
Steam until tender, about 15 to 25 minutes.
Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl and toss with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until completely cool.
Meanwhile, steam the asparagus until bright green and tender crisp, about 3 to 5 minutes.
Transfer to a colander and rinse under cold running water until cool.
In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, yogurt and mustard.
To serve, gently toss together the cooled potatoes, asparagus and green onions.
Drizzle the mayonnaise mixture over the salad, tossing just until everything is coated with dressing.
Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately or refrigerate for up to 2 hours before serving.

Serves 6.

For many years, I hated even the idea of asparagus. However, I now eat it all of the time and this recipe sounds amazing!
