Potato Pete was a friendly character found in many WWII British cookbooks. I like his jaunty walk and bits of food wisdom, and who doesn’t love to eat potatoes? Here’s a fun new recipe that is probably unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. Potato Pete would be proud.
Scrumptious Potato and Pea Salad
1-1/2 pounds small red potatoes, quartered
1 cup frozen peas
2 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. oil
1 Tbsp. fresh, grated ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Cook potatoes for 15-18 minutes or until tender. Add peas to the water and cook for 1 more minute, then drain both peas and potatoes.
Heat oil in a large skillet. Add ginger and garlic and cook for 30 seconds, then put in potatoes and peas and toss to combine everything. Top with lime juice and heat 1 more minute. Enjoy hot or cold.
