Used Charlotte potatoes with fresh mint, thyme and chives from the garden. Served it cold with barbecued jerk chicken. Delicious.

My daughter loved this as she can help herself to it in the fridge and as she isn't a great eater I can make this and know she will eat it. Lovely!

I tried it and I say its excellent to have it as a side dish for barbeques. The only other suggestion I would like to add is that I personally prefer coriander leaves to parsley because of its aromatic distinct flavour. Bit of dill...woudn't hurt either!
