Spearmint, applemint and peppermint – these are the three kinds of mint commonly cultivated and they all share the same aromatic taste of menthol. I prefer the sweet and mellow taste of applemint.


  • lb (700 g) small new potatoes, cleaned and steamed
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange rind
  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped mint
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


    Combine all the other ingredients and add them to the potatoes while still warm. Cool and bring to the table.
