Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 5 min.
Valay salad
Wash 500 g potatoes (rattes, if possible). Put into a large pan and cover with cold water.

Stage 2 - 25 min.
Valay salad
Boil the potatoes until tender (a knife blade should go through them easily).

Stage 3 - 5 min.
Valay salad
Prepare 1 shallot and chop very finely. Put in a salad bowl with the chopped herbs.

Stage 4 - 8 min.
Valay salad
Peel the potatoes while still hot, slice into rounds and add to the bowl.

Stage 5 - 2 min.
Valay salad
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.
Valay salad
Prepare the lettuce "chiffonnade".

Stage 7 - 5 min.
Valay salad
Slice 30 g radishes into thin rounds.

Stage 8 - 5 min.
Valay salad
Reheat 300 g cooked chicken in a frying pan.

Stage 9 - 3 min.
Valay salad
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.
If you don't have ratte potatoes, use another firm variety instead.
And to drink?
A white wine from Charcenne.
A few days in the fridge, protected with plastic film.
Home made.

Usually to make fruit jellies or (fruit "paste"), it's like jam but you need to cook fruit pulp and sugar much longer. Unfortunately, this long cooking is bad for both vitamins and flavour. In this recipe we use a special jam gelling agent, to reduce cooking time as much as possible .
