This is my take on a traditional French potato salad recipe. It’s deliciously fresh and goes brilliantly as an accompaniment with picnics and barbecues as well as making a tasty lunch dish on its own.
It is traditionally made with ham and gherkins. I’ve also added chicken and used cucumber and a little Tabasco instead of the gherkins as I didn’t have any to-hand.
4 large new potatoes, steamed
4 Glenballyeamon free range eggs, boiled & peeled
0.5 tray of baby plum tomatoes
2 slices of ham
2 small chicken breasts
3 tbsp mayonnaise
3 dashes of Tabasco
2 tsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp Dijon mayonnaise
Chop the potatoes into small pieces.
Slice the chicken, ham, eggs, tomatoes and cucumber to your liking.
Arrange the prepared ingredients in a dish or on a plate.
Combine the remaining ingredients in a cup and stir thoroughly to make a dressing. Use a spoon to drizzle over the salad. I like to have some of the salad undressed so choose to do it this way rather than fully tossing the salad in the dressing.
