Brown Butter Kipfler Potato Salad with Autumn Greens

Hello autumn salads, I am in love with you. Potato salads that is. With lots of refreshing greens, this Brown Butter Potato Salad is like a warm hug that radiates deliciously comforting flavours that we crave as we step into the cooler months. It's got kipfler potatoes that have been cooked and crisped in brown butter, fresh sugar snap peas, quick blanched brussel sprout leaves, pistachios, fresh green chilli and sprigs of dill. It also has a generous drizzling of extra virgin olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice that brings everything together in a big and happy way.

It'll come as a surprise that I actually created this recipe by accident. I started preparing this potato salad the traditional way by boiling the kipfler potatoes but when I strained them into a colander, I realised I should have roasted them. Then I decided to cut them in half and fry them in brown butter in a pan. The potatoes turn a delectable crispy golden brown, which adds a beautiful textural element to this dish. While the potatoes were cooking in the water, I blanched the leaves of two brussel sprouts, sliced a green chilli and peeled a bunch of sugar snap peas. I placed all of the ingredients onto a serving platter and garnished the salad with pistachio nuts and dill. See, it's so simple!

Expert Tips:

  • You can use any potatoes for this recipe but if you can get your hands on kipfler potatoes, use these. 
  • If you don't like chilli, simply omit this from the recipe.
  • If your pan doesn't fit all of the potatoes when you're frying them in the brown butter, that's totally ok. Simply add more butter to the pan and repeat until all of the potatoes are crisp and golden brown.
  • You can discard the sugar snap pea shells or keep them for another salad. Or you can finely slice them and throw them into this salad, if you like. 
  • You can make this dish ahead of time. If you're having people for lunch or dinner, you can make this salad in the morning and store it in the fridge on your serving platter as long as it's sealed with cling wrap. Take it out when you're ready to serve and drizzle extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice all over. 
  • If you plan on making this salad for a couple of dinners, keep the potatoes seperate from the rest of the ingredients. When it comes to serving, warm the potatoes up in the oven or microwave, then add the rest of the ingredients and garnishes, followed by the dressing. 
  • Potato salads are not great when they're frozen, so I would avoid this. 
  • You can enjoy this potato warm and cold.
