  1. Cook the gammon to pack instructions. Cool for 5 mins, then shred. Discard the bone and any fat.
  2. Meanwhile, put the onion in a bowl with 2 tbsp vinegar; season.
  3. Boil the potatoes for 10 mins or until a knife easily pierces the flesh. Drain and return to the pan to steam-dry for 2 mins. Thickly slice, then gently toss with the onions and vinegar on a serving plate. Set aside.
  4. Blanch the beans in boiling water for 30 secs or until just tender. Drain, then rinse in cold water.
  5. Shake the dressing ingredients and remaining vinegar in a jam jar. Toss through the potatoes and onions, then add the parsley and beans. Top with the gammon to serve.
