500g baby potatoes
7 tbsp olive oil
2 heads of red chicory, quartered
80g slices of prosciutto
a large handful of tarragon, finely chopped
60g jarred cornichons, finely chopped, plus 1 tbsp pickling liquid
1 ball burrata
salt and black pepper


Preheat the oven to 220°C fan.

Add the potatoes to a large baking tray and drizzle with 3 tablespoons of olive oil and a generous sprinkle of salt. Roast for 40 minutes.

Remove the potatoes from the oven, then nestle in the chicory quarters and prosciutto slices. Return to the oven for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix the tarragon and cornichons in a bowl with 4 tablespoons of olive oil and the cornichon pickling liquid. Stir to combine and season to taste with salt and pepper.

When the potatoes and prosciutto are crispy, and the chicory is soft, remove the tray from the oven. Tear over the burrata, then drizzle over the cornichon salsa and add a grind of black pepper to serve.

Tip: If there are any little pickled onions in your cornichon jar, chop up a few chuck them in your dressing.
