Step by step recipe

Boil the potatoes until tender (a knife blade should go through them easily).

Stage 3 - 5 min.

Stage 4 - 8 min.

Peel the potatoes while still hot, slice into rounds and add to the bowl.

Stage 5 - 2 min.

Pour 6 tablespoons French dressing (vinaigrette) over and mix with a fork.

It is important to do this while the potatoes are still hot so that they absorb some of the vinaigrette. This gives them a melt-in-the-mouth texture.

Stage 6 - 5 min.

Prepare the lettuce "chiffonnade".

Stage 7 - 5 min.

Add the radishes, lettuce and chicken to the salad. Add a little more vinaigrette if you wish and mix well.

Serve without delay so that the potatoes and chicken are still warm.

Remarks

If you don't have ratte potatoes, use another firm variety instead.
