Potato salad is kind of old school but I love this version! The horseradish gives the salad a nice little kick and all the herbs and spring onions makes it really fresh.


  • 1 kg. of new potatoes
  • Handful of tarragon leaves
  • 4 tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 tbsp. of sour cream or crème fraiche
  • 1-2 lemons (the juice)
  • 3-4 tbsp. of horseradish
  • 3 spring onions
  • Half a bunch of chives
  • Large handful of chopped parsley


  1. Boil a kilo of new potatoes, with their skin, in salted boiling water until cooked and let it come to room temperature.
  2. Meanwhile make the tarragon oil by blending up the tarragon leaves with 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil in a blender. Sieve the mixture through a cloth to get a smooth green tarragon infused oil. (you can also use just extra virgin olive oil and skip this step).
  3. Cut the potatoes in half and drizzle over some tarragon oil.
  4. Mix the sour cream, horseradish, the zest and juice of a lemon and some salt and pepper in a separate bowl. Mix this through the potatoes.
  5. Thinly slice the spring onion, the parsley and chives and mix everything together. Check for seasoning, maybe it needs salt, pepper, lemon juice or horseradish. Serve at room temperature or cold.
