450g small white boiling potatoes
450g small red boiling potatoes
2 tbsp good dry white wine
2 tbsp chicken stock
3 tbsp Champagne vinegar
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
150ml good olive oil
40g minced spring onion (white and green parts)
2 tbsp minced fresh dill
2 tbsp minced flat-leaf parsley
2 tbsp julienned fresh basil leaves
1) Drop the white and red potatoes into a large pot of boiling salted water and cook for 20 to 30 minutes, until they are just cooked through. Drain in a colander and place a towel over the potatoes to allow them to steam for 10 more minutes.

2) As soon as you can handle them, cut in half (quarters if the potatoes are larger) and place in a medium bowl. Toss gently with the wine and chicken stock. Allow the liquids to soak into the warm potatoes before proceeding.

3) Combine the vinegar, mustard, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper and slowly whisk in the olive oil to make an emulsion. Add the vinaigrette to the potatoes.

4) Add the spring onions, dill, parsley, basil, 1 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper and toss. Serve warm or at room temperature.
