Za’atar Potato and Asparagus Salad
"Want a seriously delicious potato salad? Potato salads come in many shapes and combinations, but I’m sure this one hits all the notes. Softly roasted baby potatoes, asparagus, pistachios and eggs. All tossed together in a mustard tahini dressing with just a hint of smokiness from za’atar. Warmer weather means I’m craving more salads and veggies. This recipe reflects everything I like in an ideal salad: saltiness, texture, and a hearty-spicy balance. I always roast potatoes first for my potato salads and drench them in a dressing when they’re still warm so they can soak in all the juices. This salad matches with just about anything what you can think of to serve it with, it makes a perfect lunch or side dish for dinner. But the whole point is, to enjoy it stand-alone. Yes, this spring salad is a full, satisfying meal all in one bite. It’s light, and packed with flavor and texture. But even with good salad ingredients, a great salad is only as good as its dressing, and this dressing is something you’re going to want to use on all of your salads. Crispy potatoes, eggs, roasted asparagus, crunchy pistachios and a creamy dressing, yes please."
