Warm Potato Salad
B.B.Q Food
2 lb. (900 g) new potatoes (as small as possible), skins on, washed
2 sprigs fresh mint

For the lemon and chive vinaigrette dressing:
4 Tbls. lemon juice
grated zest of 1 lemon
1 clove garlic
1 level tsp. rock salt
1 heaped tsp. grain mustard
4 Tbls. extra virgin olive oil
freshly milled black pepper

To garnish:
2 level Tbls. snipped fresh chives
6 spring onions, trimmed and chopped small


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. 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 onion and serve.
