Creamy Pesto Potato Salad with Baby Corn (vegan)

Creamy Pesto Potato Salad with Baby Corn (vegan)

I promised to post this recipe. At the weekend I made puff pastry tarts and a buffet for dinner. One of the dishes on the table was this Creamy Pesto Potato Salad with Baby Corn.

I LOVE POTATOES!

Baked, boiled, mashed, roast, fried, made into wedges and chips, topping pies, made into tattie scones or made into potato salad. I'm there!

So when I make a buffet (wee Cooper's favourite dinner) or a picnic I always make potato salad. My favourite style is quite traditional, baby potatoes, with very thinly sliced red onion, mayo or yogurt and lot so fresh dill and black pepper. I thought I'd try something different and with Graham in mind I made this dairy free potato salad.

Brie, Potato and Mushroom Tart. Try it dairy free without the brie!

Tender baby potatoes and baby corn in a creamy pesto sauce. It was rather good if I do say so myself. On the dinner table there was also puff tarts and bowls of baby plum tomatoes, baby beets, sliced cucumber and sweetcorn. Simple, but we really enjoyed it.

  7. Ooh yes, a good potato salad is hard to beat Jac. Even a quite simple one with a vegan French dressing and fresh herbs is rather good.
