We’ve partnered up with Tesco for this Syn Free Pea, Bacon & Potato Salad using their Cornish New Potatoes, which hasn’t been a hardship, since they’re a favourite of ours anyway.

With a slightly waxy feel when uncooked, they hold together superbly well for salads and bakes. Especially when you’re on the slightly heavy-handed side when it comes to salad tossing… which I may or may not be!

These Tesco Cornish New Potatoes are the first UK mainland crop of the year and this can only mean one thing – summer has arrived!

These potatoes are grown in Cornwall near to the sea where the climate is a little warmer and therefore means they’re ready to be harvested and appear on the shelves earlier than many other varieties.

If you live in Cornwall, you’ll probably spot them even sooner than the rest of the country! To be honest, that sounds like a reason to pack up the camper and head down to the coast. You say potatoes, I say excuse for a seaside break!

You can get the potatoes in 750g packs or loose, and they’re ideal for this Syn Free Pea,  Bacon & Potato Salad, which used the whole lot because… carbs 🎉

They’re really versatile too – roast them, steam them or even bake them as Syn Free Mini Potato Bites or Syn Free Chipotle Hasselback Potatoes!

These Tesco Cornish New Potatoes are harvested while they are still very young which means the skins are really soft and tasty – no need to peel. I don’t know about you, but any excuse not to peel a potato and I’m celebrating.

Just give them a rinse and they’re ready to cook in whatever way you choose. They’re available in Tesco until the end of August.

It’s the liquid from a jar of pickles! It’s an often wasted ingredient which makes salads, dressings and side dishes taste amazing.

  1. Where have you been able to source the roquito peppers from? I’ve been searching high and low with little success.

    1. Hi Maria
      They are not all that easy to find! You can sometimes pick them up with the antipasti range in Tesco and other large supermarkets. Failing that, you can pick them upon Amazon. 🙂

  2. Would you have this hot or cold??
    I need to make this now but for a bbq this evening as won’t have time later.

    Hope it’ll be ok.

    1. Hi Laura
      It’s delicious either way, but I usually have it as a salad. It will keep well in the fridge until needed. 🙂

    1. Hi Claire
      You can sometimes pick up the Roquito peppers with jars of antipasti in supermarkets, or from Amazon. If you can’t find them, you can chop up some pickled pepper from a jar. (Make sure it’s in vinegar, not oil!)
