Summer potato salad

Jeg er på mormors sommersted med lille Noah, mamma og Billy (mammas labradoodle). Det regner, men solen titter frem innimellom. Den ene dagen satt vi i ullgensere med kakao foran peisen, og den neste lå vi ute i badetøy. Norsk sommer <3 Tenkte jeg skulle dele dagens lunsj siden vi begge ble sykt fornøyde med den haha.

// I’m at our summer cabin with my new puppy, mom and moms dog Billy (who is 10x the size of the puppy) 🐶. I’ll show more of him later. It’s sunny and rainy and everything at once, and I love making lighter and more fresh food in the summer! So I thought I would share today’s lunch recipe as we both couldn’t stop eating even though we thought we had made enough for lunch and dinner at once.


Summer salad

For the dressing:

  • Honey/maple syrup

  • Salt

  • Pepper

  • 1/2 orange

  • Mustard

For the salad:

  • 4 potatoes

  • 2 onions

  • 1 pack of snow peas (sukkererter)

  • 1/2 avocado

  • Cherry tomatoes

  • Sweet pepper (søt paprika)

  • Sundries tomatoes

  • 2 carrots

  • 2 apples (preferably organic)

Kok potetene i 20 minutter. Ha i løk etter 10 minutter, så den får kokt i 10 min. Kutt tomater, paprika, avokado, eple og soltørket tomat. Rasp gulrøttene. Når potet og løk er ferdig, del dem opp og ha alt i en stor bolle. Lag en dressing av honning/lønnesirup, salt, pepper og juicen av en halv appelsin. Ha i litt sennep hvis du er fan!

// Boil the potatoes for 20 minutes. Add sliced onion after 10 minutes and let them boil for 10. Chop the tomatoes, pepper, avocado and sundries tomatoes. Grate the carrots. Once the potatoes and onions are finished, cut the potatoes and toss everything into a bowl. Add honey/maple syrup, salt, pepper and squeeze half the orange to taste. Add some mustard if you like. Enjoy 🌼
