The 5P Salad

Serves 4



  • 500g potatoes (Kipfler are the best, though standard varieties are also good if on a budget)
  • Prosciutto

  • dash White wine vinegar (to taste)
  • fresh English Spinach leaves (or rocket)

  5. Lightly toast the pine nuts until slightly coloured and set aside.
  6. To make the dressing, combine mayonnaise, mint, shaved parmesan and white wine vinegar.
  7. Toss dressing with cooled potatoes.
  8. Serve on a bed of fresh english spinach leaves. Sprinkle pomegranate and pine nuts on top of the salad and garnish with additional mint leaves.
