A prepare-ahead salad ideal for weekend entertaining
For the salad cream
- STEP 1
Boil the potatoes in salted water until tender, about 15 mins. Drain well in a colander and steam dry for 5-10 mins.
- STEP 2
Make the salad cream by mixing the flour, sugar, mustard powder and some seasoning in a bowl, then beat in the eggs and white wine vinegar. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water, making sure the base does not touch the water, and stir continuously until it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 5-10 mins.
- STEP 3
Remove from the heat and cool. Add the cream and lemon juice to taste. Cover and chill until you are ready to dress the potatoes.
- STEP 4
Pick over the frisée, discarding any damaged leaves, then tear into bite-sized pieces. Toss the potatoes in the salad cream along with most of the chives. Arrange the frisée on a platter or in a large bowl. Spoon over the potatoes and scatter with the rest of the chives.
