I found a feeling of strange dread come over me that I would be required to eat things such as lettuce and tomatoes on their own.
Thankfully the restaurant had little to do with the country then known as Ceylon (Sri Lanka now) and I found they had scotch eggs or pork pie. I was encouraged to try one salad item (you could choose three to accompany your 'main' thing). I noticed spuds so chose a potato salad.
Friends, it was mind-blowing. And that dish is still one of my main comfort foods, especially when too many potatoes have been cooked for Sunday lunch. I like it so much that whenever we have guests for Sunday lunch I try to make a point of cooking too many potatoes.
You will need to mix together:
- Cold boiled potatoes, preferably having been tossed in butter yesterday, cut into 1 cm cubes
- A spoonful or two of mayonnaise
- Black pepper
- A few pieces of crumbled brie (other cheese will do)
- 1 chopped spring onion
- A handful of sultanas (raisins will do)
