Really tasty salad, very nice change usual mayonnaise dressed salad. Served alongside barbecued meat. I didn’t have shallots so successfully used half a red onion, the colour was an additional benefit. Definitely making again.

Really enjoyed this - I can find new potatoes a little bland but mixed with fresh mint and the tangy red onion dressing they were delish! I served it with BBQ salmon and roasted veg kebabs. Will make again.
