  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Put the radishes and potatoes in a shallow roasting tin. Drizzle with 2 tbsp of the olive oil and season. Roast in the oven for 30 mins, tossing once, until tender and golden.

  2. Meanwhile, make the dressing. Whisk together the remaining oil, the yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, chopped dill and seasoning. It may separate slightly and need whisking again before serving.

  3. Remove the veg from the oven and allow to cool for 5 mins. Toss the lettuce in the dressing, top with the veg and then the fish. Sprinkle over the reserved dill fronds and serve.

Surprisingly delicious. The combination of flavours surprised me, and this was a lovely, light, refreshing salad.

I admit the combination of mackerel and radish struck me as unusual and that I'd never tried roasting radishes before, but I'm so glad I did. This salad is excellent. The radishes are juicy and spicy which works well with the peppered mackerel and comparatively bland potatoes. The dressing was really lovely and it looked so pretty with the faded pink radishes. Will make again!
