Patatas Alioli with Garlic Chives

Traditionally a Spanish Tapas dish, Patatas Alioli is known for its creamy consistency and  garlic-y tang. As much as we love Tapas at TGH HQ, this quick and easy side dish goes great with nearly every meal as it’s essentially potato salad disguised with garlic! Garlic Chives are quite a bit milder than tranditional garlic bulbs, so don’t be afraid to go overboard with how many you use. You’ll find Garlic Chives in our boxes in the Spring, often creeping into the early Summer.

Ingredients
– 3 Garlic Cloves

2. Boil in a pan of salted water for 15-20 minutes
3. Meanwhile mix mayonnaise, minced garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a bowl then refrigerate
4. Check the potatoes with a knife, and drain before they feel ready (the knife will be able to go through the potato, but won’t feel fully cooked)
5. Fry potatoes in the olive oil for 5 minutes

7. Add potatoes to the alioli sauce, mixing well before sprinkling the remaining garlic chives on the top. Serve warm or cold
