Creamy new potato salad with dill and Dijon

IMG_6244

As much as I love a challenge in the kitchen sometimes I like to keep it simple. Very simple.

This classic Scandinavian potato salad is great with fish or barbecued meats (but substitute the dill with parsley and go easy on the lemon to combine with meat) and gives me hope that spring (and summer) is just around the corner.

Creamy new potato salad with dill and Dijon, serves 1

200 g new potatoes

3 tbsp creme fraiche

2 tbsp mayonnaise (Hellman’s is fine)

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1/4 lemon, the juice

1 tbsp finely chopped dill

salt, white pepper

Boil the potatoes and drain. Leave to cool slightly (or have already cold cooked potatoes at the ready from the day before, although lukewarm works well). Dice the potatoes. Mix creme fraiche, mayo, lemon juice and dill in a bowl and add the potato. Season to taste.

Serve with a few slices cold smoked salmon and a lemon wedge.
