Fried potato salad

Side Serves 6 25 min
An unusual, zesty fried potato side dish. This vegetarian salad is very easy to make. It's a light lunch on it's own, if you add a few quartered boiled eggs. It's also a good accompaniment to fish or grilled meat.


  • 2 tbsp butter
  • slug of olive oil
  • 600-800g potatoes, boiled and thickly sliced (would work with new or old)
  • 2 handfuls flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 3 tbsp capers, rinsed and finely chopped
  • 100-200g pitted green olives, chopped
  • zest of 2 lemons

Cooking time: 20 min
