Place the salad potatoes in a pan and cover with the minimum of boiling water.
Cover with a lid and simmer gently for approximately 15-20 minutes until just tender.
Once cooked drain immediately.

Cover and cook on full power (800w) for 7-8 minutes.
Allow to stand for 1-2 minutes before serving.
Salad potatoes taste great on their own, in their skins, but if you would like to add butter here are some interesting twists:
Citrus Butter: 25g softened butter mixed with the zest of an orange and half a lemon
Herb Butter: 25g softened butter mixed with 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh herbs (parsley, mint, chives etc)
Pesto Butter: 25g softened butter mixed with 1 tsp red pesto
Garlic Butter: 25g softened butter mixed with 1-2 crushed cloves of garlic
Tip: You don't need to add butter to salad potatoes, a handful of fresh herbs, like parsley, adds flavour without the fat.
