  1. Cook the potatoes in boiling water for 10-15 minutes, then drain. Make the dressing by whisking together the oil, lemon juice, mustard and some seasoning if you want.

  2. Put all the other ingredients, including the warm potatoes, in a large bowl. Drizzle over the dressing and lightly toss. Serve immediately.

Delicious nice change from mayo based recipes

I love this recipe. I have made it a few times now, and it is so easy to prepare, and can be very versatile. I have substituted the new potatoes for sweet potatoes, and can definitely recommend it for all those who (like me) think that the substitution makes up for the 300g of mozzarella. Next time, I am going to try adding some asparagus. But I think it is safe to say that this recipe would lend itself to so many Springtime vegetables, such as courgette; green beans; runner beans... the possibilities are endless. All in all, highly recommended.

A simple salad with a great dressing! My dinner guests have a habit of bringing up how good it was. Planning to add avocado next time for a creamier texture addition

This was DELICIOUS! I used half the amount of oil suggested in the dressing as 6 tbs seemed extreme and roasted peppers out of a jar. The warm potatoes worked really well and the whole salad was a huge success - one I will certainly do again.

I used piquante roasted peppers which gave the salad a kick but it's really nice without it too!
