1. Bring a heavy-bottomed pan of water to the boil, add the potatoes and cook for 10 minutes ' they should still be firm. Allow to cool for 15 minutes, then peel and grate

2. For the sauce: mix all the ingredients together with 1/8 tsp salt in one bowl.

3. Mix the remaining salad ingredients together in a large bowl, then drizzle over the sauce and combine well. Chill in the fridge for a minimum of 15 minutes before serving.
