New Potato and Asparagus Picnic Salad


Springtime means asparagus. And it also means picnics, in the little pockets of sunshine snuck in between the rain showers. This tangy potato salad is equally good on a blanket in the sunshine or on a carpet picnic in your living room.

Boil a pot of water and blanch about 8 1″ chopped asparagus spears. (Just drop in the water and quickly cook until they turn bright green – about one and a half or two minutes.)

Boil about 8 new potatoes until done, slice them, and toss with the asparagus, mixed pitted olives, a splash of olive oil, crumbled feta and crushed red pepper flakes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

This recipe came from Bon Appetit – one of our go-to food magazines.
