Happy Saturday.

Are you looking for a nice and tasty salad recipe?

Fancy making a British Summer salad with honey-mustard dressing recipe up for the weekend?

Crisp green beans, sweet and earthy new potatoes, fresh and vibrant salad, mustardy cress — these are the flavours that make up a British summer, and they’re combined here to create a wonderful seasonal salad.

How To Make A British Summer Salad With Honey-Mustard Dressing:

  • Vegetarian
  • Low Fat
  • Gluten Free
  • Preparation time:15 minutes
  • Cooking time:15 minutes
  • Total time:30 minutes

Serves: 4


  • 4 essential Waitrose Free Range Eggs
  • 750g pack Waitrose Baby New Potatoes, halved
  • 250g pack British Green Beans, trimmed
  • 1 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • 1 tsp clear honey
  • 2 tbsp The Waitrose Farm Leckford Estate Cold-pressed Rapeseed Oil
  • 250g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 100g radishes, thinly sliced
  • Punnet essential Waitrose Salad Cress


1. Boil the eggs in a pan of simmering water for 9 minutes, then drain and cool. Shell and halve the eggs.

2. Meanwhile, cook the potatoes in a pan of boiling water for 8–10 minutes until tender. Add the beans and cook for a further 3 minutes until both are tender. Drain and cool under running water then transfer to a serving platter.

3. Whisk the vinegar, mustard and honey together with a fork, then whisk in the oil until well blended.

4. Arrange the tomatoes, radishes and eggs on top of the beans and potatoes. Drizzle over the mustard dressing and scatter with cress to serve.

Cook’s tip: A few capers or anchovies scattered over the top before serving would add a nice salty balance to the sweet dressing.
