While there are a lot of wonderful French markets in the area of Brittany we live a couple of weeks every few months, they tend to be more heavy on fruits, cured meats and the like because almost every house you drive past in our area has its own vegetable plot; everyone brows their own produce. As a result we usually take a few bags of lettuces, cucumbers and courgettes from the Pilgrims Nook vegetable gardens down to the French house with us. This Summer we have been enjoying some fantastically delicious baby potatoes my Father grew, so to accompany some sausages and other grilled meats, as well as big slices of our own courgettes sprinkled liberally with the local Fleu de Sel I put together this quick potato salad as an accompaniment. —Rachel Phipps
