This quick potato salad makes a meal of prawns or lobster, or leftover turkey or ham. Try sour cream in place of crème fraîche.



1.Add potato, celeriac and carrot to a large saucepan of boiling salted water and boil, adding peas for the last 30 seconds, until tender and easily pierced with a knife (5-7 minutes). Drain and spread out on a tray to cool (10 minutes).
2.Stir mayonnaise, crème fraîche, horseradish, chives and lemon juice in a large bowl to combine. Add cooled vegetables, season to taste with salt, toss to coat, and serve with prawns or lobster.

If you’re using fresh horseradish, finely grate 2 tbsp peeled horseradish root on a microplane, sprinkle with salt and a little white vinegar and stand until softened (5 minutes).
