Ingredients

  • 1kg baby Red Royale potatoes
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 cup (120g) Coles Sour Cream
  • 1/4 cup (75g) mayonnaise
  • 2 tbs white wine vinegar
  • 150g blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped chives
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped dill
  • 200g sugar snap peas
  • 200g snow peas
  • 500g pkt frozen peas
  • 8 short-cut bacon rashers, chopped
  • 3 spring onions, thinly sliced

Method

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place the potatoes on the lined tray. Drizzle with oil. Season. Sprinkle with paprika. Toss to coat. Roast for 30 mins or until tender.

STEP 2

Use a clean tea towel to gently crush each potato. Roast for 15 mins or until golden. Set aside to cool slightly.

STEP 3

Meanwhile, place the sour cream, mayonnaise, vinegar and half the blue cheese in a food processor and process until smooth. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in half the chives and half the dill. Season.

STEP 4

Cook combined peas in a saucepan of boiling water for 2 mins or until just tender. Refresh under cold water. Drain.

STEP 5

Cook the bacon in a large frying pan over medium heat for 5 mins or until crisp. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. Set aside to cool.

STEP 6

Arrange the potato, peas, bacon, spring onion and remaining blue cheese on a platter. Drizzle with dressing. Sprinkle with remaining chives and dill to serve.

Swap me: Try it with Danish fetta or goat’s cheese instead of blue cheese.

Dress it up: Keep this dressing recipe handy – it’s also great drizzled over crisp lettuce wedges or as a dip for spicy wings.
