Pea & Pesto Potato Salad

You know I love a good pesto. And what’s better than pesto and potatoes??? When you throw some fresh peas into the mix. 

Please use your favorite pesto. For this particular recipe I’m using a basil pesto, but my kale pesto recipe would also be delicious!

What you need: 

  • 1 ½ pounds potatoes  (I prefer to keep the skins on)
  • 1 cup peas, shelled
  • ⅓ cup pesto, find recipes here
  • Glug of oil
  • Salt & Pepper

Cut spring potatoes half or quarters, depending on the size. There are so many nutrients in the skins, so I keep them on. You do you! Place in a pot and cover with cold water. This helps the potatoes cook evenly and become tender on the inside. Bring to a boil. Cook for 10-15 minutes until tender. 

When your potatoes are about a minute from being perfect, throw the peas into the boiling water too. (This quickly cooks the peas.) Drain and pour into a bowl! Stir in the pesto and a glug of oil Season to taste. Serve warm or chilled. 

*As long as your pesto is vegan, this recipe is plant based!
