Directions

15 mins to prep

20 mins to cook

  1. Step 1

    Boil the potatoes with their skins on until tender, then place in cold water -- this helps make the skin easy to peel.

  2. Step 2

    Remove the skins from the potatoes while they're still warm. Mash the peeled potatoes to the texture of your liking. Add a generous pinch of salt and olive oil, stir through.

  3. Step 3

    Pulse the basil and chives with a pinch of salt and pepper. Pour into a bowl and top with extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice. Stir through to combine.

  4. Step 4

    Spoon the green dressing over the mashed potatoes to serve.
