  • baby potatoes

  • 10 cocktail cornichons (pickled in vinegar), cut into 1/2 cm plus 2 tsp liquid from the jar
  • 3 tbsp nonpareilles capers, plus 1 tbsp liquid from the jar
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp English mustard

  • 1/4 bag of dill, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 bag chives, finely chopped
  • 1 pack smoked salmon with cracked black pepper and lemon wedges (optional)
  • 2 bags of dolce romana lettuce (optional)


Step 1

To start, steam the potatoes for 45 minutes or until fork tender. In the meantime, make the dressing. Combine 1 1/2 cups cold-pressed rapeseed oil, 2 tsp cornichon juice (from the jar), 1 tbsp caper juice (from the jar), and 1 tsp English mustard. Mix well until well combined. Back to the potatoes, cut each in half, and transfer them to a large mixing bowl. Drizzle the dressing over, then add 1 tsp ground white pepper, toss, and then leave for about ten to fifteen minutes.
