Potato, radish and chervil warm salad

Serves 4 35 min
With bright green leaves that look a little like carrot tops, chervil has a mild, sweet aniseed flavour that works elegantly in this easy, light potato salad. If you can't find it, use parsley instead for a more robust finish. This goes well with simply cooked chicken and fish.


  • veg stock or bouillon
  • 800g new or salad potatoes, cut in ½ or ¼ if large
  • 12 radishes (keep their tops if bunched), trimmed of long roots
  • 2 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 50g butter
  • pinch sugar
  • 2 tbsp chervil leaves (or use parsley)

Prep time: 10 min
Cooking time: 25 min
  • Step 1

    Bring a pan of veg stock to the boil (or a pan of water with a little bouillon). Add the potatoes and cook until just tender, about10-12 minutes.
  • Step 2

    Remove with a slotted spoon to a serving bowl. Add the radishes and cook for 3-4 minutes, depending on size. Remove and add to the potatoes (cut some of the larger ones in half if you like).
  • Step 3

    Drain off most of the stock, leaving about 3 tablespoons. Add the vinegar, butter and sugar to the pan.
  • Step 4

    Boil to reduce a little, until almost syrupy, wilting in any radish tops (if you have them) at the end. Toss with the potatoes, radishes and chervil. Season to taste.
