New potato and asparagus salad

New potato and asparagus salad
If you love new potatoes - as we do - why not add them to a warm green salad.
These lovely Pembrokeshire new potatoes added a new dimension to one of our favourite green salads. They are very similar to a Jersey Royal.
A few crushed walnuts added extra texture. The Pecorino shavings adding a salty touch, although you could use Parmesan.
This plate contains 150g of boiled potatoes and works out at around 300 calories. That includes the chopped walnuts, Pecorino, lemon dressing (see below) and cooking oil for the vegetables. Here's the recipe for the lemon dressing:

(serves 4 - 6)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
handful of fresh mint, chopped (or half teaspoon of dried)
dash of honey to taste
salt and pepper
Whisk all the ingredients, apart from honey and salt/pepper. 

Taste - then add honey to sweeten slightly and season.
Do you know how many calories you are allowed each day? Once we worked that out, we began to lose weight and keep it off.
Here's a link to our very first blog post about our weight loss journey, which we began in January 2011. We started this blog as a way of recording what we ate while losing weight. The blog is a food diary, and contains lots of recipes, tips and ideas about losing weight.
You'll find our WEIGHT LOSS PLAN here.
