About This Recipe

I absolutely adore cooking (in case you couldn't tell) and although I could happily spend hours in the kitchen most days, there are still a few nights per week where I need something that I can have ready within 15 minutes.

This quick and easy pesto potato and antipasto salad is one of those recipes that you can make in any weather, as it can be served hot or cold.
It should be noted that this pesto potato salad is vastly improved with some of my homemade avocado rocket pesto, but of course if you're extra short on time any high-quality store bought pesto will do the trick.

For me, there's nothing like the freshness of whipping up your own pesto then and there. 

If you have the ingredients, it will only add two minutes of prep time to this pesto potato salad and will exponentially improve the fun times your taste buds will have.

Vegetarians and vegans can enjoy this salad with some added grilled tofu on the side or mixed through. 

Beans can make for a welcome addition to this salad as well. Meat eaters will love this one as a side to a piece of grilled fish.

Happy salading!
