Crudites with lime & coriander mayo

Method

  • Cook the potatoes in lightly salted, boiling water until just tender, adding the beans for the last couple of minutes. Then drain well, cut the potatoes in half or quarters and plunge in iced water.
  • At the same time, briefly blanch the asparagus in another pot of salted, boiling water. Then drain and also plunge in the iced water, before draining well.
  • Combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, coriander and lime juice. Taste for seasoning and set aside.
  • Whisk ¼ cup oil with the balsamic and seasonings in a small bowl.
  • When everything is ready, arrange the vegies alongside each other on a large platter. Sprinkle the potatoes with a little fresh oil and serve with the two dressings in small bowls on the side.
