Remove with a slotted spoon, leaving the water in the pot. Cool slightly, peel off the skins, (if desired), and then cut into chunks and put in a bowl. 2 Bring the pot of water used to cook the potatoes to a simmer, and drop in the green beans. Cook for about 3 minutes, then add the peas and simmer for a further 2 minutes, or until the vegetables are just tender. Drain, refresh under cold water, and drain well again. Tumble the vegetables into a bowl with the potatoes. 3 Combine the buttermilk, sour cream, herbs, shallot, vinegar, mustard (if using), spring onion, lemon zest and radishes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour the dressing over the potatoes while they are still warm, and toss gently to coat. Serve the potato salad at room temperatur­e.
