I still have some of my baby new potatoes left, they are slightly past their best so sautéing is a good way to give them a new lease of life and realise their inner buttery-ness. My Mother Hubbard’s fridge doesn’t have too much to escort them as my Ocado delivery is not due for many hours but all is not lost. There’s an unopened packet of Jamón de Trevélez from my Action Against Hunger goodie bag last week so a few rosy slices torn and strewn amongst the golden tinged potatoes seemed a perfect accompaniment. And for a final flourish a couple of spoonfuls of the utterly gorgeous Stark Naked basil pesto let down with a few glugs of my absolute favourite basil-tastic olive oil –Tornatore Extra Pesto.
So a simple exploration into what is at the bottom of the fridge netted a truly stupendous hot potato salad – possible the best ever?
