This is an absolutely cracking potato salad – sweet and warm new season’s baby potatoes, juicy and spicy radishes, fragrant roasted walnuts and honey-mustard dressing. It’s like a song about spring.

The salad is great on its own, but it can be a cool addition to chicken, sausages or fish. For example, to smoked salmon. You can also use old potatoes. But I would like you to use young potatoes for this salad. In addition to the dill and green onions, you can add fresh mint leaves. Also, add a lot of black pepper!


If your radishes have become a little soft, you can freshen them up by putting them in a cold water for about half an hour.

Potato Radish Salad with Cucumber, Walnuts, and Honey-Mustard Dressing


25 minutes 10 minutes 2 servings

INGREDIENTS (serves 2)

  • 600 g (1 lb 5 oz) young potatoes 
  • 300 g (10 oz) radishes
  • 200 g (7 oz) fresh cucumbers
  • 70 g (2½ oz) walnuts
  • 1 bunch of green onions (50 g, 1½ oz)
  • ½ bunch of dill

For the dressing:

  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Lots of black pepper
  • Salt


  1. Peel or scrub the potatoes well with a brush. Cover with water and boil until tender.
  2. Roast the nuts in a dry pan. Coarsely chop with a knife.

The nuts can even burn slightly, this will give a special flavor to the salad. Just a little! 

  1. In a large serving bowl, mix all the ingredients for the dressing.
  2. Cool the potatoes a bit so they can be handled. Slice into thick circles. If the potatoes are large, cut them in half.
  3. Put the potatoes in the bowl with the dressing and mix gently. A silicone spatula is perfect for this. Cover while you cut up the rest of the ingredients for the salad.
  4. Cut the radishes and cucumbers into thin slices; you can use a slicer.
  5. Finely chop the green onions. Break the dill into small sprigs. Add the herbs, cucumbers, and radishes to the potatoes. Stir. Salt, if necessary. Sprinkle with walnuts.
