Great recipe. I didn't have mustard, so I used yougurt instead. Still turned out delecious.

Few changes I made: Cilantro instead of parsley, and butter instead of olive oil. It is fantastic!

Really delicious way of cooking new Cornish potatoes. Keeps the flavour of the ingredients very fresh and tasty.

Very nice! I served this with hot smoked salmon which went really well with the lemony dressing. The kids loved it.

This recipe was brilliant, really made the potatoes a wee bit special - I served them with the Roast Chicken stuffed with cous cous, apricots and pine nuts at a dinner party for 9 girls. It was ideal as I was able to make up the dressing in advance and have it sitting, then when the potatoes were ready it was poured over, tossed and ready to serve in a warm bowl, saving me having to be away from the table too long.
