Don’t attempt to make this potato salad unless you have a dense, waxy-fleshed potato such as Wilja, Cultra, Pink Fir Apple or Jersey Royals. A floury potato that collapses when sliced is a waste of time for salads. It is important to mix the dressing with the potatoes while they are still warm. A basic vinaigrette can hardly be bettered, made with oil and vinegar to a proportion of 3 to 1. Potatoes will absorb dressing so be generous with it. Fresh herbs can be added as they are available.<
