    Warm Jersey Royal Potato Salad with Chicken and Spinach

    Make the most of Jersey Royal potatoes from spring until early summer when they are in season. Grown only on Jersey, these sweet, sometimes earthy-tasting potatoes are easily identified by their long, oval shape and delicate skin. Team them with asparagus, chicken, bacon lardons and spinach to make this simple meal.

    Cook's tips

    Jersey Royal potatoes have a slightly waxy texture which means that they retain their shape when cooked, making them suitable to serve either hot or cold.

    To enjoy these potatoes at their best, buy only as you need. If necessary, store in a dry, dark cupboard for a short period only. Jersey Royal potatoes should not be peeled, however they do need to be thoroughly washed.
