CRISP FRIED POTATO SALAD

Its been a very lazy day today. Not much to do. Don't feel like going out either. 
so decided to type out an easy salad we whipped up for dinner last night. i love the comfort of the potatoes and the feta cheese is just YUM!! 


INGREDIENTS:

1.5 kgs  baby potatoes
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp oil, extra
2 medium onions, sliced
250 gms sugar snap peas
250 gms feta cheese
1 small red oak leaf lettuce

for the vinaigrette:

1/2 cup (125 ml) olive oil
1/4 cup(60 ml) white wine vinegar
2 tsp seeded mustard
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tbsp chopped fresh chives



PROCESS:

      Boil, steam or microwave potatoes until tender. Drain and then cut the potatoes in half.

Heat oil in a frying pan . Add the potatoes. cook on the cut side until browned and crisp. Drain on absorbent paper.

Heat the extra oil in a pan and add the onions. cook stirring until soft. drain on absorbent paper.
Boil, steam or microwave the peas until just tender. Drain and rinse off under cold water.
Cut or tear up the cheese into small bits.
Combine potatoes, onions, peas and cheese in a bowl. Add the vinaigrette and mix gently. top the lettuce leaves with potato mixture.
vinaigrette:
Combine all ingredients in a screw top jar and shake well.


note: you can reduce the quantity depending upon the portions you need. but for the vinaigrette i normally use the exact amount the recipe says n refrigerate the rest.
