  1. For the dressing put the oils, mustard and vinegar into a bowl with ¼ tsp each salt and pepper and whisk hard for 3 mins. Add cream and stir in. Keep at room temperature until ready to serve.
  2. Boil potatoes for 12-15 mins until tender, drain, then when cool enough to handle, halve. Meanwhile, fry lardons with lots of black pepper until golden. Mix together the potatoes, lardons and chives. Pour over the dressing and mix again.

WAY too strong on the mustard. 3 tsp really would do it. I changed down the mustard to 3 tsp and it was absolutely delicious - all gone and bowl scraped.

Really nice but strong on the mustard, I'll halve the amount next time I make it. Also will chop the pots before cooking as seems easier to me! Def recommend though!
