Jersey Royals are back and, as one of the few purely seasonal treats we have left, it would be a waste not to indulge and eat them as often as we can while they are on the supermarket shelves. Go for the freshest you can find and avoid keeping them in the fridge at home as this dramatically affects the flavour. This simple salad goes great with cold meats for a filling lunch.
300g of cooked Jersey Royals
4 tablespoons of mayonnaise
Juice of one lemon
Salt and pepper
Finely chopped chives
1. Peel and finely chop the shallots and place in a bowl with the lemon juice.
2. Cut the Jersey Royals in half and mix gently with the shallots and lemon juice, taking care not to break up the potatoes too much.
3. Add the mayonnaise and mix.
4. Season with salt and pepper and top with chopped, fresh chives.
