Ingredients

  • 2 lb Yukon Gold Potatoes
  • 3 avocados
  • 2-3 scallions - chopped
  • 1 chili pepper -chopped
  • 1 lemon or lime - juiced
  • 1 cup frozen green peas (thawed out in warm water)
  • 1/4 cup chives - chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill (roughly choppep)
  • 1 pinch sea salt + more to taste
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes -for garnish
  • 1 lime -sliced for serving

Instructions

  • Rinse and slice the potatoes into 1/4 inch slices. Cover with cold water and bring to a boil. Season generously with sea salt at this point, the water should taste like sea water. Cook for about 10 minutes until tender but not mushy. Drain the potatoes in a colander and allow them to dry very well in their own steam then allow to cool.
  • Meanwhile slice the avocados and scoop out the flesh. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and mash together with the lemon or lime juice. Mix in the scallion and chili pepper and season  to taste with sea salt.
  • Add the potatoes to the bowl with the avocado together with the green peas and dill. Use a spatula and fold them together with care as not to break them.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings again with more lemon juice and sea salt. Garnish with the chives and serve at room temperature or chill for later use.

Notes

Reserve about 1/2 cup of the water from the potatoes so you can use it to stretch out the dressing later if need be.
