Celebration New Potato Salad

The new spuds herald an end to peeling and removing of suspect black bits from the old spuds! Here’s a recipe to celebrate their flavour in style!


Serves 4

  • Enough new potatoes for 4 people
  • Rind of 1 lemon, grated
  • Handful fresh parsley or chives
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 bunch fresh red radishes
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Scrub the potatoes, if necessary. Otherwise, just wash.

  2. If they're small enough, leave them whole to boil. Otherwise, chop in half.

  3. Cook in boiling water for 15 minutes until soft (if whole, this may be nearer 20 minutes).

  4. Drain the potatoes and allow them to cool a little.

  5. Chop the parsley / chives finely and then mix with the lemon rind, vinegar and oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  6. Wash the radishes and trim the leaves and the roots.

  7. Slice the radishes.

  8. Mix the potatoes with the dressing. Sprinkle the radishes on top.

Time From Cupboard-To-Table

About 40 minutes
