Shaun Rankin's beautifully simple salads can be thrown together at the last minute when everything else is prepared. This potato salad recipe, using Jersey Royals, uses an interesting combination of goats cheese and figs that works surprisingly well with roast chicken or even grilled fish. The figs used in this potato salad add a lovely layer of sweetness.
Place the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with cold salted water. Bring to the boil, simmer and cook until you can pierce with a knife
While the potatoes are cooking break the goats cheese into nugget-sized pieces and cut the figs into quarters. Put both in the fridge until needed
Once the potatoes are cooked, drain well and place in a serving bowl
Season, sprinkle the goats cheese over the warm potatoes, arrange the figs over the top and finish with the pine nuts
