    Serves: 6


    • 2 lemons
    • 7 tbsp avocado or olive oil
    • 1½ tsp caster sugar
    • 4 tbsp Waitrose Cooks' Ingredients Nonpareille Capers in Brine, rinsed
    • 750g Jersey Royal or baby new potatoes
    • 20g pack mint


    1. Halve the potatoes if large and put in a saucepan with a third of the mint sprigs. Add a little salt and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer gently until tender, about 15-20 minutes.
    2. Pare the zest from the lemons using a zester or grater. Tear the remaining mint (reserving a few sprigs to garnish), discarding the stalks. Mix the oil in a bowl with the sugar, capers, 2 tbsp of lemon juice and the mint. Season with black pepper.
    3. Thoroughly drain the potatoes, discarding the cooked mint sprigs, and turn into a serving dish. Spoon over the dressing and scatter with the lemon zest and the reserved mint sprigs. Serve warm or cold.
