Potato Salad

Potato Salad

Clearly you can buy Tatty Salad for next to nothing in a pot. But we’re not like that! During “Lock-Down” we’re spending more and more time in the kitchen, it occupies our time and we’re not couching in front of the TV all day.


Potatoes pealed quartered, boiled and drained
Pickled Gherkins, finely chopped
Spring Onion
Squeeze of Lemon
Black Pepper
Fresh home grown Chives to dress


(1) Let you Potatoes cool to room temperature.
(2) Mix all the dressing ingredients.
(3) Dress the Potatoes.
(4) Sprinkle with chopped Chives.
(5) Enjoy as a side.

The Gherkins and Lemon juice really lift a plain old Tatty salad to a different level and made it well worth tinkering with.

Toyug kebabs (Azeri sour Chicken skewers) recipe
Around the world for £4 - A is for Azerbaijan
“Azeri chicken skewer is the souring agent, such as lemon juice or vinegar in the marinade. It seasons the dish and also tenderises the meat.”
We've modified this traditional recipe to suit the budget and ingredients we can find locally, so here goes.
3 Chicken breasts, cut into cubes
2 tbsp oil
2 lemons juiced
1 small Onion, roughly chopped
1½ tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper
1 pinch of sugar
Skewers (we don't have them so we just lined the Chicken up in a tray under the grill)
1 red onion, cut into thin rings
½ cup finely shredded shredded Flat Leaf Parsley
1 tsp Sumac
Lemon wedges
Wine Wine vinegar
(1) Combine the cubed Chicken, Oil, Lemon juice, Onion, Salt, Pepper and Sugar in a  bowl and marinate covered for at least 2 hours.
(2) Thread the Chicken onto skewers. (Or just link up in the grill tray) Grill and transfer to a large serving plate.
(3) Drizzle the dressing over and serve.
We had ours with sweetened Potato wedges and a dressed salad.
