Rosie 22 - I saw Anna make this recipe on tv. Add the potatoes to the dressing. Then she sort of made a "shell" out of the leeks, capsicum and spinach (all arranged decoratively on the bottom and sides of pan). She then added the potato salad and then covered with more leeks, capsicum and spinach - so the potato salad was sort of encased. She then folded over the glad wrap, placed a smaller pan on top and weighted it with a can and left it in the fridge over night.

I'm making this one this year two, it looks very festive :)

Any suggestions for best potatoes to use?

I think the first ingredient (home made aioli), is added to the potato then the next 6 ingredients make the dressing to serve. Anyone able to help???

These instructions aren't very clear. Mix dressing ingredients together in a large basin and stir in the potatoes until they are coated with dressing. Make a decorative layer on the base of the lined cake tin. Begin with the caramelised leeks placing them at random. Place pieces of spinach around the leeks. Place pieces of capsicum around the spinach and leeks. The bottom of the cake tin should be almost covered. Place half of the potato mix on top of the leeks, spinach and capsicum to create the next layer. Then place the remaining leeks, spinach and capsicum decoratively on top of the potato layer. Make sure that you put some around the sides. Finally cover this layer with the rest of the potato. You will have four layers whe you have finished. Hope this helps. I watched Anna make it on TV. It looks yummy!

I made this and it looked great but I was disappointed with the taste. The spinach was far too over powering.
