Potato salads are the perfect BBQ accompaniment and a tasty addition to a picnic spread. This spicy, herby version is inspired by Korean flavours and works well with chicken, beef and even fish.

- Put the herbs, spring onion, mayonnaise, yoghurt, juice of 1/2 lime, gochujang paste and a good grind of black pepper into a large mixing bowl and stir to combine well. Taste and adjust the lime and pepper to taste.
