Over at 'Chalky's World' she wrote a post about 'Chipples' an old Regional Salad Onion Dish her Grandmother used to make. I thought it looked like a delicious recipe and in true 'Inthesky' style adapted it, as I did not have a full bunch of Spring Onions. My Great Great Grandfather was a Market Gardener and my Grandmother told me she used to tie little bunches of onions for her Grandfather, to go to market in the 'Vale of Evesham'.
My Version of 'Chipples' included finely sliced Celery, Radish, peeled and diced Cucumber and sliced Spring Onion. The dressing is a tablespoon of Cream, 2 tablespoons of Vinegar and a teaspoon of Sugar. I seasoned mine with Salt, Black Pepper and Paprika pepper.

My version of 'Chipples' became part of the baked potato eating ceremony with my parents.
