Dill Potato Salad

  • 1 pound Potatoes
  • 1 bunch Garlic scapes
  • 1/4 pound Peas (snap or snow recommended)
  • 2 tbsp Mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp Oil of choice (olive recommended)
  • 1/2 Lemon (grated for 1 tsp zest and squeezed for juice)
  • 2 tsp Vinegar (rice recommended)
  • 1/2 bunch Dill
  • 1/2 bunch Green onions (optional)
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Place potatoes and garlic scapes in a large pot of water and bring to a boil. Simmer about 5 minutes, or until scapes are tender and remove them from water. While potatoes continue to boil, chop the scapes into 1/2 inch pieces.

Once you can pierce the potatoes with a fork  add the peas to the water and simmer 1-2 minutes more. Drain potatoes and peas into a colander. Use tongs to pull potatoes out onto a cutting board and rinse peas with cool water.

While the potatoes cool, whisk mayonnaise, oil, lemon zest, lemon juice and salt and pepper in a small bowl. In a large bowl, mix vinegar with 1 tsp. salt and stir to dissolve.

When the potatoes are cool cut them into 3/4 to 1-inch pieces. Toss the potatoes in the vinegar/salt mixture and then stir in about half of the dressing. Add scapes, peas, green onions, dill and remaining dressing.

Serve chilled
