Step 1

Cut the new potatoes into halves or thirds, depending on their size. You can do them to any size you like, but I usually make them around an inch square.

Step 2

Bring a medium pan of water to the boil and cook the chopped potatoes for around 15 minutes, or until a sharp knife glides cleanly through them. I always like to add a few leaves of mint to the water while boiling.

Drain into a colander and leave to cool.

Step 3

Once cooled, add in the red onion, mayonaise, salad cream, salt and pepper, and mix together with your hands. (This stops the potatoes getting too squished by a spoon). Try the mix at this point: if you want it a little more tangy, add more salad cream accordingly.

Step 4

Dish into a serving bowl, sprinkle the chopped chives over the top and garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.
