The potatoes are flavoured with green onions and olives (though a true Niçoise salad would also have tomatoes and anchovies in it).
Potatoes VinaigretteServes: 4-6
500g (1 lb) potatoes, peeled and sliced
1 tbsp coriander (cilantro) leaves, finely chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp malt vinegar
2 green onions, coarsely chopped
8 ripe black olives, pitted and halved
Method:Bring a pan of salted water to a boil. Place the potatoes in a steamer basket and set over the boiling water. Cook for between 7 and 10 minutes, or until just tender.
Turn the potatoes into a serving bowl and add the coriander. In the meantime, combine the oil and vinegar in a screw-topped jar. Season to taste with salt and black pepper then shake to mix thoroughly. Pour this dressing over the potatoes, and toss to combine.
Garnish with the onions and olives and serve.
