Potato and apple salad with an Asian dressing

This makes a nice change from potato salad smothered in mayonaise. The Telegraph Hill Asian Wasabi dressing is light and fresh with a peppery finish,

It was inspired by a traditional Dutch potato and apple salad which Rod's Mum used to make and which went especially well with the Christmas ham.

It's a great barbecue salad but could be made all year round.


500 gm of potatoes
3 hardboiled eggs
3 medium size red skinned crisp and sweet apples ( I used Gala)
1 spring onion ( white part only)
3-4 tablespoons of Wasabi vinaigrette (I used Telegraph Hill)
The juice of up to half a lemon


The potatoes have a better flavour if you boil them whole. When done cut them into large cubes.
Wash the apples.There is no need to peel. Cube them.
Peel and chop the hardboiled eggs.
Chop the white part of the Spring onion finely

Mix all of these gently together in a salad bowl. Add the Wasabi Vinaigrette and stir in. Sharpen the flavour with a tablespoon of lemon juice . Keep tasting and adding up to the juice of half the lemon depending on how sweet/tart the apples are.

Add salt to taste
