Anya Potato Salad with Shallots and Vinaigrette

I love the consistently good flavour of Anya potatoes. If you can’t get them, try to buy other good-flavoured salad potatoes for this.

 

 
 

This recipe is taken from How to Cook Book Three and Delia's Vegetarian Collection.

Method

Steam the potatoes over a pan of boiling, salted water, covered with a lid, for about 20 minutes until they are tender.

Meanwhile, make up the dressing. Begin by crushing the salt quite coarsely with a pestle and mortar, and then add the garlic. As you crush it and it comes into contact with the salt, it will quickly break down into a puree.

Next, add the mustard powder and really work it in, giving it about 20 seconds of circular movements to get it well blended. After that, add some freshly milled black pepper.

Now add the vinegars and work these in in the same way. Then add the oil, switch to a small whisk and give everything a really good whisking.

As soon as the potatoes are cooked, cool them in a mixing bowl for 10 minutes, then stir in the vinaigrette and shallots while the potatoes are still just warm.

Now add the chives and give everything a good toss to distribute any dressing collected in the base of the bowl and transfer the salad to a serving bowl.

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.

Potato Salad with Roquefort

This potato salad, with creamy, piquant Roquefort and the added crunch of celery and shallots, is good to eat all by itself, but I also like to serve it with cold cuts at a buffet lunch. It's therefore a very good recipe to have around at Christmas.
