This will be a better salad if made with home-made mayonnaise, but you may not have the time or the inclination.


  • 2 lb (900 g) new potatoes, steamed and cut in little dice
  • 2 tender celery stalks, sliced
  • 1 pickled dill cucumber, sliced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 4 oz (110 g) peas, cooked
  • 3 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 10 fl oz (275 ml) mayonnaise
  • Ā½ red pepper, de-seeded and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon capers


    Mix the celery and the cucumber with the potatoes. Add the onion, cooked peas and parsley.

    With a blender mix together the mayonnaise, red pepper and the capers. Blend until smooth and pink. Turn the potatoes around in this dressing.
