  1. Put the potatoes in a pan of salted water, bring to the boil, then cover and simmer for 8-10 mins or until cooked through – a cutlery knife should easily pierce them. Drain and leave to cool in a colander.

  2. Combine the mayo, mustard, vinegar, honey and eggs, then season well. Stir through the potatoes and half the spring onions, transfer to a serving dish and scatter over the remaining onions. Chill until you’re ready to serve. Can be made 1 day ahead.

A really nice treat. Used creme fraiche instead of mayo and it turned out great. I think they could also call this ‘American style’ potato salad as it reminded me very much of something you’d get in a New York Deli.
