Asparagus, Radish and New Potato Salad

by

Introduction

Fleshy green asparagus, as fresh as you can; sweet new season’s baby potatoes; juicy, pepper-hot radishes: this simple but sensational salad is made just by steaming the potatoes, roasting the asparagus, halving the radishes, tossing everything together gently with some tarragon, before dressing them lightly but fragrantly in a herb-thick buttermilk vinaigrette. This is a paean to Springtime in edible form, and I can’t stop making it.

For US cup measures, use the toggle at the top of the ingredients list.

  • Very tasty salad. It helps to roast the asparagus and steam the potatoes the day before. The buttermilk gives the dressing a gentle tang that just works!

  • Love your recipes, Nigella. They are wonderfully versatile and riffable. Used a bit of Greek yogurt thinned for the buttermilk and some thyme and basil since I had them on hand. Have to say, this salad is lovely warm but also quite good cold. Served alongside bacon mushroom frittata for brunch today and will enjoy the rest during the week as part of my lunch.

  • Just made and eaten this, it was lovely - an inspired mixture of flavours. Didn't have buttermilk, used kefir - also shredded lettuce instead of pea shoots.

  • Made this yesterday and it was delish! It’s light and it makes you feel you’re eating very healthily. Highly recommended!
