Raclette is famous for its melting abilities and sweet, nutty flavour, particularly on potatoes. This salad can be served with hams, salamis, salads or pickles, but works equally well on its own or topped with a poached egg.


  • 650 g ( lb) new potatoes
  • 6 spring onions, thinly sliced


  • Cook the new potatoes in boiling salted water for approximately 20 minutes until tender. Drain the potatoes well, cut each in half and scatter into an ovenproof dish. Sprinkle the spring onions on top and season with the salt and a twist of pepper.

  • Preheat the grill. Mix the lemon juice with the olive oil and spoon over the potatoes. Arrange the raclett
