You can get the potatoes in 1kg packs or loose, and they’re ideal for this Pea, Pickle and Bacon Potato Salad. You can also steam, roast or even bake them.

I actually think they taste far better with their skins on, so there’s no fussing with preparing them. They’re available in Sainsbury’s until the end of August.

    1. Hi Sarah,

      The peas need to be defrosted before using them in this recipe – there is no need to boil them as long as they are thawed as they get cooked prior to freezing.

      Hope that helps!
