  • 250 grams of peas
  • Vinegar
  • Oil
  • Salt

How do you make it?

Start by cleaning the potatoes and boiling them in their skins. When they are ready, leave them in the fridge for approximately one hour so that they cool.

At the same time, boil the egg until it is completely cooked. If you like it a little softer, you can also opt for a poached egg.  If you like it well cooked, it is best to place it in cold water for 10 minutes after cooking it to avoid the yolk turning green.

Meanwhile, cut the rest of the ingredients into small pieces.

Lastly, mix all the ingredients together and season to taste. The country salad, a recipe that’s as delicious as its simple to make!
