This recipe comes from residents of the Scottish islands, particularly the Isle of Arran, which is the largest island in the Firth of Clyde. Cooks there would traditionally use local Arran potatoes, but you can use any kind. You may also substitute mayonnaise for salad dressing or cream.

How to Make ARRAN POTATO SALAD

Step-by-Step

  2. Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water for 10 minutes, or until tender; drain and pat dry and dice.
  3. Cook the peas for about 5 minutes and then drain.
  4. Mix all the vegetables together in a large bowl while still warm. Stir in the parsley, onion, salt and pepper.
