  • 2 lbs potato (2 lbs = 900 g)
  • 2 small red onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ¼ cup vinegar
  • cup water
  • 2 tsp agave syrup (or maple syrup)
  • salt to taste
  • 1 bundle radish
  • 4 spring onions
  • ½ cup parsley, fresh
  • 2 tbsp mustard
  • 4 pickles


  • Optional: peel the potatoes. We generally do this only if the skin doesn’t look good (most of a potato’s nutrients are in the skin)
  • Boil the potatoes in salty water. If you don’t add enough salt the potatoes will taste like nothing. After 15 minutes check if they are done by pinching them with a fork. If it’s easy to pierce through they’re done.
  • Tip the potatoes into a sieve and let them cool for 5 minutes or so, then slice them roughly into 0.2 inch/5 millimeter pieces (see picture for slice size)
  • For the dressing: dice the onion, grate the garlic and put it into a small pot. Add vinegar and water and let it simmer it until the onions are tender.
  • Once the onions are tender add agave syrup, mustard and salt.
  • You will get some crumbles and offcuts from the potatoes. Put this into the dressing because this will bind nicely.
  • Finely slice the radish, chop the spring onions, pickles and parsley.
  • Now assemble everything in a salad bowl. Mix well, taste test and if necessary add more salt to your liking.
  • Done!
