Purple Majesty Potato Salad

image

This is the first time I have cooked and tried the Purple Majesty Potato. I can see after eating it why it is classed as royalty! It really has an earthy taste and sweetness that makes it quite special!

It is extremely good for you and is naturally high in healthy anthocyanin, an antioxidant which gives blueberries and blackberries it’s intense colour. Bursting with flavour and full health benefits you can’t go wrong!

I teamed the steamed potato up with some raw white cabbage in an “Indiany lemony” dressing. This way you get a sharp tangy and refreshing taste yet a crunchy texture!

INGREDIENTS

Half cabbage sliced into strips
4 medium purple majesty potatoes steamed
pinch of turmeric
pinch of asafoetida
Salt to taste
Squeeze of fresh lemon juice

METHOD

• In a large mixing bowl,  combine all ingredients and toss the salad to coat on the dressing

• Leave to marinade at room temperature for 30 minutes and then you’re good to go!
