By now you must have some lovely zucchini in you garden who are crying out to be used in a dish before they grow to dirigible size. Get on this recipe! I’m serving at a birthday party tomorrow, and I know it will be everything that plain old potato salad isn’t! And NO mayo, for those looking to escape mayo’s clutches:)
6 ounces Chevre, at room temp
1/4 cup Natural Yogurt
1 Tbsp Rice Wine Vinegar
2 Small Shallots, sliced thin and caramelized
1-2 Tbsp Flat Leaf Parsley
Freshly Ground Pepper, to taste
Sea Salt (optional)
6 medium sized Red Potatoes or Yukon Gold, roasted, cooled and sliced
2 small Zucchini, sliced
1 1/2 cups good quality Smoked Ham, diced (feel free to substitute crisply fried bacon, fried with the shallots)
2 Roasted Piquillo Peppers, sliced into thin strips
A huge handful of Micro Greens or sprouts
In a large bowl combine: chevre, yogurt, vinegar, caramelized shallots, parsley, pepper and salt and mix well. Add in the prepared zucchini, ham, piquillo and mix to coat. Add in the potatoes and micro green, folding gently so as not to destroy the potatoes in the process. Check for seasoning and chill for an hour or so before serving.
Thanks to The Endive Chronicles for the recipe:).
