Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1kg kipfler poatatoes, scrubbed
or see method for ingredients, new potatoes
1/2 teaspoon sa“lt, for the cooking water
250 grams crème fraîche
or see method for ingredients, sour cream
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped, plus extra to serve
1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped, plus extra to serve
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus extra to serve
2 celery stalks, thinly sliced
6 small radishes, thinly sliced

Method

  1. Put the potatoes and salt in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil over medium–high heat and boil until tender, about 12–15 minutes, testing with the point of a sharp knife. Drain the potatoes, reserving 125 ml of the cooking water, and return them to the saucepan over low heat for 1 minute to ensure any excess water has evaporated. Remove the potatoes from the saucepan and set aside to cool.
  2. To make the dressing, whisk together the crème fraîche, lemon juice, lemon zest, dill, chives, sea salt and pepper until smooth. Add 2 tablespoons of the reserved cooking water and whisk until creamy, adding more cooking water until the desired consistency is achieved.
  3. To make the salad, slice each potato into 1 cm slices and place in a large mixing bowl. Add the celery and radishes. Pour in the dressing and toss to combine.
  4. Transfer the salad to a serving bowl and sprinkle with dill, chives and pepper.
  5. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. This salad is best eaten on the day it is made.
