Honey-mustard potato salad with soft-boiled eggs and asparagus


Serves 4


  • 450g baby new potatoes, scrubbed and halved
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 12 asparagus spears, trimmed
  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1½ tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 40ml olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, finely sliced
  • Handful of fresh parsley, chopped
  • 3 dill pickles, roughly chopped


  1. Place the potatoes in a pot, add one teaspoon of salt and cover with 5cm of water. Bring to the boil over a high heat and cook for 8-10 minutes. Remove the potatoes with a slotted spoon.
  2. Add the asparagus to the boiling water and cook for two minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon. Plunge the asparagus into a bowl of iced water until cold, then drain.
  3. Gently lower the eggs into the pot of boiling water and set a timer for exactly seven minutes. When ready, drain the eggs immediately and run under cold water until cool to the touch.
  4. In a bowl, combine the apple cider vinegar, mustard and honey. Slowly stream in the oil, whisking constantly until emulsified. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Add the potatoes, red onion and parsley to the vinaigrette and toss to coat. Transfer to a serving platter. Peel the eggs and cut in half lengthwise, then tuck them in between the potatoes. Top with the chopped pickles and serve.
