How to Make Minted Pea Spring Potato Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. wash and scrub potatoes or if in my house, peel potatoes as no one likes the skins. cut in half and place in boiling salted water. Add 4 eggs to this pan or you can boil them separately. They are usually done after about 10 minutes but test with a fork for doneness.
  2. Add the bag of frozen peas to the water and turn off the heat and cover. You don't want the peas to get mushy and you want them to stay green but still cooked. After about 10 minutes, drain in a colander. Peel eggs under cold running water and quarter them.
  3. Mix your salad dressing of lemon. olive oil, chopped mint, chopped parsley, salt and pepper. pour all into a bowl or casserole dish and toss everything together. Top with parmesan cheese and serve or chill and serve later.
