Potato Salad Recipe Serves 6 (as a side)
Crickey oh Riley!! The sun’s out after months of bleak days. We’re finally getting a taster of summer. In the UK (certainly in our house) a bit of sun means that a BBQ is obligatory.

Before I go on, credit where it’s due, this roasted gammon recipe is the brain child of Nigella Lawson. We just finished our Sunday roast and had this roasted gammon in coke recipe with roasted potatoes, honey roasted parsnips, carrots, leek and parsley sauce…there was not a scrap left on anyones plate!
