Steamed Potato Salad with Beetroot Dressing

Once again we’re in the middle of a summer heatwave. It’s been 40 degrees here for the last few days so we need some refreshing salads to cool down. This salad was just what I needed the other day, the dressing complemented the potatoes perfectly. I bought a packet of baby potatoes in the supermarket which were ready for steaming. You just put the packet in the microwave without opening it or anything cook for 8 minutes and you’re ready to go. But if you don’t want to do it that way you can easily cook the potatoes on the stove it’ll take about 5 more minutes.
