Potato salad with new potatoes is pretty much one of the most summery dishes I know. The weather here has not been very summery lately but let’s pretend that summer is here with this delicious potato salad. I have used smoked tofu in this recipe and I would say that regular tofu is not an ideal substitute. What makes this salad so great is in my opinion the added smoky flavour.
Potato salad with smoked tofu
Serves 4 as a light lunch
600g new potatoes, cut into 2 cm cubes
bunch of dill, chopped
small red onion, finely chopped
juice from half a lemon
100ml finely chopped gherkins
4 mushrooms, finely chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
1-2 teaspoon cider vinegar
6 radishes, chopped in half then finely sliced
100g smoked tofu
1 teaspoon wholegrain mustard (or mustard of your choice)
Boil the chopped potatoes in salted water for roughly 10 minutes. Drain and put aside to cool for a moment. Mix the dill, red onion, lemon juice, mustard, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, cider vinegar, radishes and mushrooms in a big serving bowl.
Heat a pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Slice the tofu into thin strips and fry for a couple of minutes on each side on a high heat until they get some colour. Cut the strips into squares and add to the salad along with the potatoes. Season with salt and pepper.
