Method

A SIMPLE salad which makes a light first course or lunch dish, this is quick to make and a nice way to take advantage of the new potatoes.

Serve with granary bread or slices of baguette.

Scrub the potatoes and boil them in their skins until just cooked through. Wash the celery and remove any stringy parts. Cut into small strips and keep in a bowl of cold water while the potatoes are cooking. Drain and peel the potatoes while still warm and cut into small chunks.

Mix them with the drained celery and season with salt and pepper and the wine vinegar. Whip the cream, mixing gradually with the lemon juice, until thick but not stiff.

Fold the cream into the salad. Cut the ham into small strips and mix in gently.

Serve garnished with shredded green salad leaves.
