It is time to start my annual diet. Again.
I have always had problems with my weight. Don't get me wrong, I'm far from being obese, but I'm having difficulties getting rid of that 5+ kilos. But this is over now. I decided to finally say goodbye to my love handles. I will not start to blog about it or mention is further on, but I had to write it down to sort of officialize it. This time, I have to stick to it, no more excuses. I'm so determined, that I even bought a new pair of running shoes.
When it comes to salads or sides, I prefer the simple ingredients. The less is more, also in this case. Just go out to the garden, or visit the nearest farmer's market and grab all the fresh veggies. I would say everything works in this combination. The key to this salad is the sauce. The spicy, sour, fresh cream is heavenly. This salad is tasty even if you don't follow any diet.
Spicy-Sour Potato Salad
green of fennel
1/2 tablespoon Harissa (or according to taste)
200g creme fraiche
2 tablespoons buttermilk
Cut potatoes into wedges or halves and cook them in salted water until tender. Strain potatoes and cool to room temperature.
For the sauce, in a pan combine harissa, creme fraiche and buttermilk. Season with salt and pepper.
Mix the sauce with the potatoes and serve with fresh peas, tomatoes and top it fennel.
