  • 450 g/ 1 lb New potatoes
  • 3 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp Wholegrain mustard (Dijon can be substituted)
  • 1 tsp Yellow mustard seeds
  • 4 tsp Capers (salted, not brined)
  • 3 Spring (scallion) onions
  • 6 Radish
  • 3 Sprigs dill
  • Seasoning - to taste


  • Do not peel the potatoes, but wash them as necessary. If the potatoes are large cut them in half. Boil in salted water for 15-20 minutes until tender
  • Drain and set aside to cool
  • Rinse the capers well and mince roughly
  • Top & tail the radish, then slice thinly
  • Remove the outer skin from the spring onion, chop off the root (discard) and slice thinly
  • When the potatoes are cool mix the olive oil, mustard, mustard seeds, lemon juice and capers in a small jug until well combined. Pour over the potatoes
  • Add the radish & onion. Toss briefly, taste and season as necessary
  • Just before serving chop the dill and sprinkle over the salad


The salad can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days (covered) - stir briefly before serving. I recommend adding the dill right before serving to ensure it does not wilt in the dressing.
