  • Large baking tray
  • Frying pan
  • Large bowl


  • 900 g Maris Piper potatoes
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 medium echalion shallots thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
  • 80 g sour cream
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp flat-leaf parsley chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 200⁰c.
  • Peel and cut the potatoes into ¾ inch chunks. In a large bowl toss together the potatoes, 2 tbsp of the oil and 1 tsp salt and the black pepper.
  • Spread out into a single layer on a large baking tray and roast, stirring once halfway through, until browned and cooked through, about 25-30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.
  • While the potatoes are roasting, heat the remaining oil in a frying pan on a medium heat. Add the shallots and the remaining salt. Cook for about 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened and brown. Add the garlic and cook for a further 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the sour cream, mustard, and red wine vinegar. Add the cooked potatoes, shallots and garlic and gently toss to coat.
  • Taste for seasoning and stir through the parsley. The salad can be served warm or at room temperature.
