Very nice and tasty salad. I made this for dinner and used 400g potatoes and a bit less fish as well. More than enough for 2 people with leftovers too. I substituted for smoked salmon instead as I couldn't get trout. I liked the crunch of the runner beans with it.

I served this as a main course salad and found that this quantity served two. It is delicious: fresh and summery with a lovely tasty dressing. I'll definitely be making it again.

Quick, easy and delicious. Only gave it 4 stars as my husband found the dressing too sharp. We are doing the 5/2 fasting diet and a serving of this at under 300 calories was perfect for an evening meal.

I have just ,are this for tea tonight, and I was highly surprised I really enjoyed it. I have never had trout before, but found it full of flavour and worked really well with the dressing. I was not keen on the idea of adding horseradish. I really do not like it, however I added it any way as stated and it was lovely. The potato made it filling enough, and it was really easy to make. Next time I might not add the potatoes and make it as a extra light lunch. 10/10
