Recipe – “Kumara Salad”

Had friends around for a barbie the other night, and thought it might be nice to try a spin on a potato salad.  Ended up referring to this and this and ended up with a basic but delicious dish.

3 medium kumara, chopped into cubes
2 rashers bacon, baked in oven on baking paper
2tbsp or so of homemade aioli
1tsp dijon mustard
squeeze of lemon juice
salt and pepper

Once the bacon has cooked a little, chuck the kumara on the bacon fat and roast.
Chop the bacon into bits; cut the rind off if it is hard.
Cool kumara – otherwise the dressing will go all melty & oily.
Mix the aioli, mustard, lemon, S&P together and then mix with the bacon/kumara.

Very delicious the next day too, cold.
