Creamy smoked trout salad

Creamy smoked trout salad
We love this SMOKED TROUT SALAD as it's quite easy to put together. With all the ingredients to hand, it's more of an assembly job, apart from boiling the potatoes.
I added a little more horseradish sauce to the dressing today. 
Smoked trout is cheaper than smoked salmon, and makes a nice change. If you can't find trout, you can always substitute with hot smoked salmon. 
We've used a very thick and creamy Greek yoghurt for the dressing. It really helps give the dish a velvety richness, without using mayonnaise (which can often taste too oily).
This dish comes in under 300 calories - and it is so filling, you would never believe it. Room for something else…… Here's our recipe:

HOT SMOKED TROUT SALAD
Ingredients (serves 2)
300g new potatoes
140g hot smoked trout (or salmon)
watercress 
pickled cucumber to garnish (gherkins, cornichons etc)
4 spring onions (or half a diced red onion)
small amount of oil for the watercress
Yoghurt dressing
1 tablespoon Greek yoghurt
2 teaspoons lemon juice
zest of half a lemon
1 teaspoon horseradish (add more if you like)
2 teaspoons olive oil
a little milk to loosen if the dressing is too stiff
Salt/pepper
****
Boil the new potatoes for 15-20 minutes (depending on how waxy they are) and allow to cool enough to handle. Cook them until just under done as they will continue cooking while cooling down.

While the potatoes are cooling, mix together the yoghurt dressing.

Dress the watercress with a small amount of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

While you make the yoghurt dressing the watercress will wilt slightly - which is what we wanted.

Pour dressing over potatoes and stir.

Mix in the chopped spring onion.

Flake in the smoked trout and a few sprigs of watercress.

Turn out onto a plate, add the pickled cucumber and serve with the remaining watercress.
