Makes: 1 Jar
Preparing Time: 20 minutes (includes boiling the potatoes)
- 3/4 cup boiled potatoes
- 5 hard boiled organic quail eggs (or 1-2 chicken eggs)
- 3/4 cup cherry tomatoes
- 1/4 cup pepper
- 3/4 cup steamed green beans
- 1/4 cup baby red onions
- 1/4 cup black olives
- a handful of micro greens
- 1 tBsp olive oil
- 1 tBsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tBsp honey
- a handful of chives
- salt and pepper
- Choose a jar big enough to contain all the ingredients. My jar is 750 ml. Make sure it’s clean and dry before you fill it up.
- To prepare your potato salad dressing, finely chop the chives, then add the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, honey. Season with a little bit of salt and pepper.
- Make sure to boil your potatoes and eggs and steam to green beans in advance. I recommend boiling the potatoes for 15-20 minutes. The eggs are best if they are hard boiled – for quail eggs, you need to boil them for 2-3 minutes, for chicken eggs – 8-10 minutes. The green beans can be steamed for about 5 minutes.
- To prepare the rest of the potato salad, you just need to chop the pepper. The cherry tomatoes can stay whole.
- Fill up your healthy potato salad jar by layering the different ingredients. The potatoes and eggs are first, then the dressing. You can then add the cherry tomatoes, pepper, and green beans. Add the baby red onions and black olives. Top it all with a handful of micro greens.
- Keep refrigerated and consume within 4-5 days.
