1.35kg small new potatoes or Jersey Royals
250ml mayonnaise
4 tablespoons buttermilk
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
Small handful chopped fresh dill
Freshly ground black pepper
75g chopped celery
75g chopped red onion
1) Place the potatoes and 2 tbsp of salt in a large saucepan of water. Bring the water to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, 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 pan and cover with a clean, dry kitchen towel. Allow the potatoes to steam for 15 to 20 minutes.

3) Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk together the mayonnaise, buttermilk, Dijon mustard, whole grain mustard, dill, 1 tsp of salt and 1 tsp of pepper. Set aside.

4) When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut them in quarters or in half, depending on their size. Place the cut potatoes in a large bowl and while they are still warm pour over enough dressing to moisten.

5) Add the celery and red onion, 2 tsp of salt and 1 tsp of pepper. Toss well, cover, and refrigerate for a few hours to allow the flavours to blend. Serve cold or at room temperature.
