Warm Potato Salad with Lemon and Chive Vinaigrette

This recipe can be served warm, as an accompanying vegetable, or cold as part of a group of salads – in which case you still need to pour on the dressing while the potatoes are warm.


This recipe is taken from Delia Smith’s Summer Collection.


First of all place the potatoes in a saucepan with enough boiling water just to cover them, add the mint and some salt, and simmer them for about 15-20 minutes.

Meanwhile make the vinaigrette (watch How To Make Dressings here).

Using a pestle and mortar, crush the garlic and rock salt together to a paste, then gradually whisk in all the other dressing ingredients.

When the potatoes are cooked, drain them in a colander and transfer them to a serving bowl.

Pour on the vinaigrette dressing while they are still hot, toss them around in the dressing to get a good coating, then finally scatter in the chopped chives and spring onions and serve.
