Snow Pea and Potato Salad

Recently we were staying with some friends on their farm. We had a lovely time planting, harvesting, preparing and eating produce. This simple dish was one that we enjoyed almost every day. It was such a blessing to be able to eat fresh produce straight from the garden and to fellowship at the family meal table surrounded by friends. Thank you to the Cole family. May the Lord bless you and the fruit of your land. 

Preparing for planting
Planting Potatoes


4 large potatoes or equivalent sweet potatoes
2 handfuls of snow peas
Celtic sea salt to taste
Extra virgin olive oil
1-2 cloves fresh organic garlic
About 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

Fresh from the farm!


Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
Cut potatoes into bite-size cubes and lightly oil and salt.
Line a tray with baking paper and put potatoes on the tray in the oven until cooked and browned. 
The potatoes are especially nice if you have an element at the bottom of your oven and you allow them to get crispy by placing the tray down low, or if you crisp them under the grill for a few minutes.
Make garlic oil by crushing or finely chopping garlic and placing in a glass jar covered with extra virgin olive oil and a little celtic sea salt.
Top and tail snow peas and place in a large bowl.
Just before serving add the potatoes, sesame seeds and garlic oil and toss.

"And the land shall yield her fruit, and ye shall eat your fill, and dwell therein in safety."
(Leviticus 25:19)
