Potato salad

Side Serves 6 30 min
A lovely, traditional, warm-weather salad. The creaminess is cut through by the sharpness of capers, gherkins and mustard vinaigrette. If you have them to hand, try adding chopped parsley, spring onions, red onions or chives. This recipe makes a very good picnic component, or a summer lunch.

  • 100ml white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tbsp capers, soaked in cold water for 20 mins, then squeezed dry and chopped
  • 1 tbsp English mustard
