BBQed Asparagus and Potato Salad with Egg and Crispy Olives
I defy you not to love this dish. It doesn’t seem to matter how much I make, I never seem
to have leftovers! It’s a great partner to any BBQ meat, or fish, and sometimes when we’re
having a vegetarian day, I’ll serve it with BBQed or panfried haloumi. And what’s not to
love about haloumi?
Serves 4-6 as an accompaniment
Heat oven to 220 C, and turn on BBQ to HIGH.
80 grams pitted, halved kalamata olives
1kg chat potatoes, halved
3 eggs, hard boiled, peeled and grated
4 bunches thin asparagus, woody ends removed
2 spring onions, green part only, thinly sliced on diagonal
100 ml olive oil
Toss olives in 20ml olive oil and roast until very dry, about 15 mins.
Toss potatoes in 60 ml olive oil, salt and pepper, then roast, shaking tray often, until crispy,
well browned and cooked through,( or parboil then BBQ until nicely brown and cooked
Toss asparagus spears with 20ml oil and season with salt and pepper, then BBQ until
well browned, even slightly blackened in parts.
In a large shallow serving dish place asp, pots, spring onions and dress.
Mix egg and crumbled olives and sprinkle over salad and serve
1clove garlic crushed
1tbsp each balsamic and red wine vinegar
2tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper
Mix everything but oil in a bowl, then with a fork and constantly whisking, slowly add the oil
to emulsify the dressing.
Notes: asparagus can be panfried for a similar result if BBQ isn’t available…
