Fraiche potato salad

An absolutely delicious potato salad made with a beautiful creme fraiche dressing. Ideal to make using leftover cooked new potatoes but do make sure you reheat them in a bit of boiling water if using pre-cooked, as the dressing works better this way..


  • 4-6 M/L cooked new potatoes cut into chunks – they need to be warm so the dressing soaks in better
  • 2 heaped dessert spoons of full fat creme fraiche
  • 1 very heaped teaspoon of Dijon mustard
  • ¼ of a finely chopped red onion, or 3-4 chopped spring onions
  • 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
  • tablespoon of chopped chives
  • 1 tablespoon1 of white balsamic or very good white wine or apple cider vinegar
  • large pinch of sea salt
  • any fresh herbs to serve – mint is good

Now add the potatoes with the onions and chives ad stir gently, to coat int the dressing.

Sprinkle with fresh chopped herbs to serve. 

Nutrition Info


Potatoes are wrongly slated by nutrition fashionistas. They have plenty going for them, as well as being incredibly delicious!

Their biggest claim to fame is their vitamin B6, which is used throughout the body for cell formation, and that’s a pretty big task. B6 is also a key player in nerve and brain function, as well as gene expression. Spuds are also pretty rich in vitamin C, which isn’t only good for immunity but plays a strong part in forming and maintaining healthy connective tissue and skin.

Good honest nutrition

The potato, like man, was not meant to dwell alone.
