Method

  1. Cook the potatoes in plenty of boiling salted water until tender, about 15 mins. Drain and allow to cool for 10 mins. Make the dressing by mixing the mayo with most of the chives.
  2. Scatter half the watercress across a big platter or plate, chop the rest roughly and mix with half of the mackerel, the potatoes and mayo. Toss so that everything is covered in the dressing.
  3. Pile the mackerel-potato mix on top of the watercress, then top with the rest of the mackerel and chives.

Simple, delicious and tasty. I loosen the mayo with a little natural yoghurt and sometimes add a dollop of horseradish sauce as well.

Delicious! Really simple to make and full of flavour. I added finely chopped red pepper on top for some colour and crunch.

A great weekend lunch - quick to make despite the instructions seeming a bit fiddly. I didn't have any chives so used spring onions instead and made a bit more of the dressing by thinning down the mayo with a dash of lemon juice and water. Served with oatmeal bread and a tomato salad - definitely one to make again.

Delicious, went back for seconds, and thirds!!! Didn't get too soggy when left in the fridge overnight too.

This was so good! A huge amount of flavour for hardly any ingredients and so easy to do. We had it as a light dinner but would make a great alternative to potato salad at a picnic too.
