Gluten free potato salad with sweet and baby potatoes

Method

  1. Place the prepared baby potatoes and sweet potato in a microwave safe dish, with a dash of water and cover with a lid. Place in the microwave for 5 minutes, mix well and microwave for a further 5 minutes or until the potatoes are soft and cooked through. If your microwave is powerful, reduce the cooking time. Set the potatoes aside to cool.
  2. Meanwhile place a saucepan of water on the stove and bring to the boil. When boiling use a spoon to gently place the eggs in. Cook the eggs for 10 minutes and then run them under cold water for a minute and leave them sitting in cold water to cool.
  3. When cool enough to handle, peel the eggs and cut them into quarters.
  4. In a frying pan, heat a little oil and lay the prosciutto flat in the pan, cook until crispy and golden on both sides. Set aside on some paper towel to remove the fat.
  5. When everything has cooled (things can still be warm just not hot), place the potatoes, eggs and most of the spring onions in a serving bowl and snap the prosciutto into shards over the top. Stir in your gluten free mayonnaise and garnish with the remaining spring onions.
