One of the best salads out there meets another iconic salad to make the ultimate BBQ side or even main for a midweek lunch. It truly cannot be beaten!

Method

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees or 180 fan. Fill a large saucepan with cold water and a big pinch of salt. Add the potatoes and bring to the boil. Boil for around 25-30 minutes until completely fork tender.

Whilst the potatoes boil, vigorously massage the thinly sliced red onion with the mustard, garlic, lemon juice, red wine vinegar and salt. Leave to macerate for 10-15 minutes.

Just before the potatoes have finished boiling, add the cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, chillis, oregano and feta to the bowl with the onions. Season with the olive oil, a touch more salt and lemon juice to taste. Toss everything together until completely combined.

Once the potatoes are cooked, drain and allow to steam dry completely.

Add to two baking trays lined with parchment paper. Flatten each potato with the bottom of a glass and drizzle with plenty of olive oil and salt. Roast for around 25 minutes, or until crispy and deeply golden brown (adding extra drizzles of olive oil as needed).

Once the crispy potatoes have cooled slightly, add to the salad with the vegan mayo and vegan yoghurt. Season to taste, garnish and serve immediately. Enjoy!
