Spring is in the air!

It’s a beautiful day today (finally) and it’s set to be sunny for the next few days.

The perfect time to post my roast new potato salad with an incredible fresh vegan tzatziki, mint, and peas.

I’m super happy with the tzatziki, the hero of the dish, I hope you love it as much as I do.

I’ve been using it on pretty much everything; dal, savoury pancakes, with olive oil and crispy sourdough.

Absolutely wonderful.

This recipe is so simple, but you’ve got to love roast potatoes, right?

And they are just as good in a salad as with your Sunday roast.

This salad is good hot and cold, but I like the contrast between the warm crispy potatoes and the cool tzatziki.

Love, Niki xx

    I’ve made this so many times now and I’m always amazed by how good it tastes. Fav potato dish ever 😋

    It may be October but had to make this to go with my homemade vegan sourdough pizzas tonight.

  • What a perfect summer salad! Multi-colored fingerling potatoes are incredible when prepared this way. And yes, you have to be super careful with wine as a vegan! That’s why I don’t drink right now and I don’t plan on drinking regularly when I turn 21 years-old this December. I will try a vegan beer or wine on that day, but it will probably be one of the only days I drink out of the year and for a VERY long time!

    • So glad you like the salad Cassie!
      Yes absolutely, very sensible!
      Much love, Niki xx

      • Trying this out tomorrow! Looks so good as a BBQ side dish, in the photo I don’t see the crushed peas… just wondering….

    Great recipe – I’ll give this a try this weekend 🙂
