Prep time: 5 minutes
Boiling time: 5-15 minutes depending on the size of the potatoes - keep checking, you don't want them mushy
1/2 kg/1 lb new potatoes, cut in half unless they are very small
1. Boil the potatoes in salted water until they are almost tender . Always start with cold water.
2. Drain and quickly immerse in ice cold water for 1-2 minutes to stop the cooking. Drain well and pat dry with paper toweling. Wet potatoes won't absorb the dressing.
3. Put potatoes in a large bowl and add the olives, olive oil and vinegar, chives and salt & freshly ground pepper Toss well and taste - too subtle, add more vinegar, too vinegary - quickly add more oil.
