purple potato salad
I like to use a mixture of new potatoes and purple potatoes in this salad, but if you cant find any purple ones, just use all new potatoes instead. But try to hunt them down theyre great!
Make the dressing by mixing together the olive oil, lemon juice and crème fraîche or fromage frais. Cook the potatoes in plenty of boiling salted water for around 20 minutes, until tender, and drain well. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, scrape off the skins with a knife and slice into bite-size pieces. Mix with the dressing, then add the radishes and herbs and season well to taste.
6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
juice of 12 lemons, to taste

1lb 2oz baby new potatoes
1lb 2oz purple potatoes
