Add the parsley to the hot potatoes, add 5 tablespoons French dressing (vinaigrette), mix well and leave for 5 minutes.

Stage 7

It's important to do this because the hot potatoes will absorb some of the vinaigrette and parsley flavour, and so will became soft and tasty. Delicious!

Stage 8 - 3 min.

Add the bacon and cabbage, add more vinaigrette if necessary and mix well.

Stage 9

Serve immediately. It's better if the potatoes are still warm when the salad is served.
You might like to try adding a finely chopped shallot with the parsley, or pouring a little dry white wine over the potatoes while they are still hot.

If you don't like bacon, you can simply leave it out.
Several days in the fridge, in a closed jar.
