1. Place potatoes in a saucepan of cold, salted water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 10-12 minutes or until tender when pricked with a fork. Drain the potatoes and set aside to cool slightly.

2. Meanwhile, make the pesto dressing. Process mint, almonds, garlic and lemon juice with enough oil to form a loose paste. Fold the aioli through and season to taste.

3. Toss the dressing through the potatoes then place them into a serving bowl. Can be served hot or cold.


If potatoes are unequal sizes, cut larger ones in half.
