Poor old cress always gets relegated to egg mayonnaise, but it really works with potatoes, too

Really simple to prepare and a great way to make new potatoes a bit more 'special', will definitely be using this dressing in future...

How simple is this - fed up with just doing plain boiled potatoes by adding simple ingredients makes all the difference. My husband doesn't like beans so changed to sugar snap peas and it was delicious. Will definitely be doing these again.

I love this dish and have done it loads of time with either green beans or runner beans, really popular and I love "all in one" veggie dishes when entertaining.

Cooked this as recomended with the Salmon Trout fillets, very easy and a refreshing change.
