My favourite potato salad recipe of all time - this one gives a spicy, sour kick.


  • 1 kg Mediterranean baby-potatoes, washed and cooked in salted water till soft but still firm
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil, to keep potatoes moist

For the sauce:

  • 250ml tangy mayonnaise
  • 125ml creme fraiche
  • 4 gherkins, finely chopped
  • 15 ml capers, washed and finely chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 handful dill and Italian parsley
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • freshly ground sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • handful fresh baby rocket


  • STEP 1
    Carefully peel the potatoes and cut in halves or quarters. Gently sprinkle with olive oil to keep moist until needed.
  • STEP 2
    For the sauce:
  • STEP 3
    Mix together all the sauce ingredients and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • STEP 4
    Gently mix the sauce through the potatoes. Be careful not to over-mix as you don't want the potatoes to break apart. Top the potato salad with the rocket.
  • STEP 5
    Tip: Keep the salad at room temperature until serving. If it's too cold some of the flavours won't come through.
