Wash the potatoes but don’t peel them – slipping the skins off cooked, warm potatoes ensures they are smooth and waxy, ready to soak up the vinegar and oil.

Potato Salad


  • 500 g new potatoes, washed thoroughly
  • 1 Tbsp white wine (sauvignon blanc is good)
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 6 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp red onion, finely diced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Serves 4


  1. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil, add the potatoes and bring back to the boil. Simmer for 10-12 minutes or until tender.
  2. Drain and allow to cool to the touch. Slip the skins off the potatoes. Put the potatoes in a shallow dish, and cover with the white wine, lemon juice and olive oil.
  3. Leave to cool completely, roll ing the potatoes from time to time to ensure they soak up plenty of dressing.
  4. To serve, decant to a salad bowl, pile the diced red onion on top, add sa lt and pepper to taste and serve.
  5. Good with grilled fish, and a great accompaniment to barbecued sausages.

If there is any leftover salad next day, remove the potatoes from the oil and drain. Heat 1 Tbsp light cooking oil and 1 Tbsp unsalted butter in a large frying pan, add the drained potatoes and saute until browned and crispy. Fantastic with a steak and green salad.
