  • 150 ml vegetable broth/ stock 5 fl oz
  • 1 cucumber

  • 2 tablespoon fresh chopped dill use more if you are using dried dill as the flavour is weaker 
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 4 tablespoon sunflower oil other vegetable oil 
  • 4 tablespoon white wine vinegar alternativley use cider vinegar

  • Wash the potatoes and then boil them with the skin on for 20 minutes in salted water. 
  • In the meantime, peel and finely dice the onion. Heat 2 tablespoon of sunflower oil in a pan and fry the onions until translucent. 
  • Pour the vegetable stock/broth into the pan and boil with the onions on medium heat for about 10 minutes. 
  • Remove from the heat and season with salt, pepper, sugar and white wine vinegar. 
  • Once the potatoes are boiled you can peel them while still warm. 
  • Slice the potatoes into 1 cm wide slices and place into a large salad bowl. 
  • Peel the cucumber and slice it in half lengthways. Cut into fine slices. Wash the radishes and cut into fine slices. 
  • Add the vegetables to the potatoes and pour over the warm dressing. Mix well and add in the two tablespoon of dill.
