Method

  1. Place the potatoes in a pan of cold water. Bring to the boil then simmer for 12-15 minutes, until tender. Drain and allow to cool. Meanwhile, place the asparagus in a pan of boiling water and simmer for 1½ minutes, then drain and refresh in cold water.
  2. Put the white wine vinegar, lemon juice, caster sugar, oil and mustard powder in a jug. Season with freshly ground black pepper, whisk together, then set aside or store in an airtight container until required.
  3. Transfer the potatoes and asparagus to a large bowl and add the onion, cucumber, radishes, parsley and watercress. Toss to combine. 
  4. To serve, gently toss through the dressing and top with the flaked mackerel.


Cook's tip: You could always use a drained 200g tin of tuna steak in water in place of the mackerel in this dish.
Save: 
Like asparagus, traditionally cut runner beans are visually interesting but are a less expensive option.
Cheat: 
No-one's going to mind if you use a quality ready-made salad dressing instead of making your own - we love Taste the Difference wildflower honey and mustard dressing.
Magic: 
Make like a Michelin-starred chef and garnish your salad with a scattering of our Taste the Difference micro herbs - they not only look brilliant, but they have a really intense flavour,
