This delicious potato salad brings together new potatoes, peas, and Prosciutto tossed with a light yogurt mint dressing, an excellent compliment to just about any meat dishes.

It is best served warm or at room temperature or if making ahead, place in the fridge. When ready to serve, bring to room temperature and fold in a few extra tablespoons of yogurt dressing.

Potato Salad with Peas and Mint

adapted from Chow

  • 500 g New potatoes, scrubbed
  • Salt
  • 50 g Prosciutto
  • 1 Small shallot, thinly sliced
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 120 g Frozen peas
  • 2 tbsp Plain yogurt
  • 2 tbsp Milk
  • 2 tbsp Fresh mint leaves, finely chopped

  1. Place the potatoes in a large pot filled with salted water and bring to a boil over high heat. Once the water boils, reduce the heat to medium and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain the potatoes and set aside until cool enough to handle.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the Prosciutto in a large frying pan or cast iron skillet until well browned and crispy, about 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a paper-towel-lined plate.
  3. Return the pan, with the bacon fat, to the stove over medium heat and add the shallot. Season well with salt and pepper and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the peas and cook until tender, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a large bowl to cool.
  4. Once the potatoes are cool, cut into large dice and add to the pea mixture. Add the yogurt, milk, mint, and the Prosciutto and fold until the potatoes are well coated. Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed. Serve at room temperature.
