Potato Salad

IMG_20170617_123630.jpgIngredients

1 bowl of potatoes cooked, cooled and roughly chopped (I used new potatoes. I kept the skin on and scrubbed them well. To cook I steamed them for about 10-15 minutes. You could use another type of potato as well and remove the skin if you prefer.)

3-4 spring onions chopped

about a handful of fresh mint chopped

For the dressing

Juice of 1 lemon

1 tablespoon olive oil

3 tablespoons natural yogurt
