New potato salad with garlic mayonnaise & cress

New Potato Salad

Serves 8

  • 1 kg new potatoes, scrubbed

  • 1 free-range egg yolk

  • 1 teaspoon English mustard

  • 600 ml extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 clove garlic

  • 1 squeeze lemon juice

  • 2 punnets cress

Gently boil the potatoes in salted water until tender. Drain well and leave to cool slightly.



Make the mayonnaise by whisking together the egg yolk and English mustard in a bowl. Then add the olive oil very gradually, drop by drop – once you've blended in a quarter of the oil, add the rest a little more quickly, whisking all the time. Pound the garlic with a pinch of salt in a pestle and mortar and add to the mayonnaise. Season with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice.



Slice the cooked potatoes in half and dress with the garlic mayonnaise. Turn the cress punnets on their sides and slice the cress stalks near the base. If the cress is a bit dirty, give it a good wash before folding into the dressed potatoes. Then tuck in and enjoy!

These are lovely tweaks on the old classic. Jersey Royals are best if you can find them.

Nutritional Information Amount per serving:

Calories

Calories are just a unit of energy. If you eat more than you use you can gain weight, or lose it if you don't eat enough. How much you need depends on your weight, gender and how active you are, but it's around 2,000 a day.

Carbs

Carbs are a great source of energy and, excluding foods such as potatoes, are made from grains - like bread, pasta and cereal. We all need carbs, but try to make them all wholegrain by sticking to brown bread, rice and pasta - they are much more nutritious.

Sugar

We all deserve a treat sometimes, but try to limit your sugar intake. Most of your sugar should come from raw fruit and milk, because they give us lots of nutrients too. Always check food labels so you know how much sugar you're eating.

Fat

We all need to eat a small amount of fat because it protects our organs and helps us grow. But we need to be careful about how much fat we eat and what kinds of fat, because in higher levels it's associated with weight gain, diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

Saturates

Saturated or "bad fats" are in beef, pork, chicken skin, butter, cream and cheese. Too much can be bad for our heart and cholesterol levels, but unsaturated or "good fats" in fish, nuts, avocados and some oils can help keep our hearts healthy if eaten in moderation.

Protein

Protein helps our muscles to grow and repair, as well as providing you with essential amino acids. When it comes to protein, try to eat leaner sources such as chicken and fish or non-meat sources such as eggs, dairy, beans, nuts, seeds, tofu and pulses.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
