For 4

Ingredients

  • 4 smallish uncooked beetroot, trimmed and scrubbed
  • Olive oil for drizzling
  • 400g new potatoes, such as jersey royals or cornish earlies
  • 200g hot-smoked trout, skin removed and flaked into large pieces
  • Lemon juice to serve

For the dressing

  • 2 tbsp hot horseradish sauce
  • 2 tbsp thick natural yogurt
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small bunch fresh dill, chopped, a few fronds reserved to finish

Method

  1. Put all the dressing ingredients in a jar with a tight fitting lid. Shake vigorously to combine. Taste and adjust the seasoning, sweetness or acidity as you want to.
  2. Put the beetroot in a saucepan, cover with salted water and bring to the boil. Cook for 25-30 minutes or until they take the point of a knife with ease. Drain the beetroot and, when they’re cool enough to handle, slip off their skins, cut them into bite-size pieces and put them in a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Meanwhile, scrub the potatoes, cut them into bite-size pieces, then put in a pan of salted water and bring to a simmer. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until tender. Drain and, while still warm, toss with 1 tbsp of the dressing, season with salt and pepper and allow to cool a little.
  4. Tip the dressed potatoes onto a serving platter. Arrange the beetroot over the top, followed by the smoked trout. Spoon the dressing over the salad and finish with a scattering of feathery dill sprigs, a squeeze of lemon juice, some sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper.

  1. Prepare the salad a few hours ahead and keep covered somewhere cool or in the fridge. Bring back to room temperature and toss with the dressing just before serving.
