1.3kg small white boiling potatoes
Salt
30ml good dry white wine
30ml chicken stock
30ml lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
Freshly ground black pepper
165ml good olive oil
40g red onion, finely diced
10g chopped fresh tarragon
10g chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1) Place the potatoes and 2 tbsp salt in a large pot of water. Bring the water to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 10 to 15 mins, until the potatoes are barely tender when pierced with a knife.

2) Drain the potatoes in a colander, then place the colander with the potatoes over the empty pot off the heat and cover with a clean, dry kitchen towel. Leave the potatoes to steam for 15 to 20 mins, until tender but firm.

3) Meanwhile make the dressing; in a small bowl, whisk together the wine, chicken stock, lemon juice, garlic, mustard, 2 tsp salt and 3/4 tsp pepper. Slowly whisk in the olive oil to make an emulsion. Set aside.

4) When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut them into quarters or halves, depending on their size. Place the cut potatoes in a large bowl and pour enough dressing over them to moisten (as the salad sits, you may need to add more dressing).

5) Add the onion, tarragon and parsley, and salt and pepper to taste. Toss well, cover, and refrigerate for a few hours to allow the flavours to blend. Serve cold or at room temperature.
