POTATO SALAD WITH ROSEMARY ROASTED FENNEL AND CREAMY MUSTARD AND HONEY DRESSING

Potato Salad with Rosemary Roasted Fennel and Creamy Mustard and Honey Dressing

Spring makes me think in new ways and I have now been thinking about potato salad for a while. Potato salad makes me think spring and it makes me think summer for some reason but I wanted to do a ‘last of the winter potato salad’ so I used fennel because here in Italy it is a winter-spring vegetable, well at least to me, after a long winter I usually don’t buy fennel even though it is available in spring (and now I am talking about the calendar one, not the one I apply as soon as I can feel spring in the air) so to me it is definitely a vegetable for the colder season. But to make it a more interesting ingredient in a potato salad, I roasted it with a little rosemary and extra-virgin olive oil and made a creamy mustard and honey dressing for the whole thing. I loved it and I hope you will love it too!

POTATO SALAD WITH ROSEMARY ROASTED FENNEL AND CREAMY MUSTARD AND HONEY DRESSING
2-3 servings

salad:
6 medium potatoes
1 large fennel bulb
the white part of a small leek
rosemary, finely chopped
salt
extra-virgin olive oil

dressing:
1 tblsp Dijon mustard, I used whole-grained
1 tsp honey
1-2 tsp apple cider vinegar
2 tblsp sunflower oil or some other mildly flavoured type
4 tblsp fresh cream

– Trim the fennel bulb and then cut it it into thin wedges. Put them in an oven-proof form, sprinkle them with salt and pinch or two of chopped rosemary and bake in a pre-heated oven (175°C/350°F) for 15-20 minutes or until they are soft and slightly golden.
– Boil the potatoes in salted water and cut them into pieces when ready. Slice the leek thinly and add to the potatoes in a bowl.
– Mix the ingredients for the dressing.
– Add the fennel wedges to the salad and drizzle the dressing all over it. Mix well.
