Smoked mackerel, watercress and horseradish potato salad

This salad is quick to make and the combination of firm new potatoes, zesty horseradish and the peppery mackerel and watercress is just perfect. I served it with beetroot which is also the perfect match with all the other ingredients. It also works well as a starter, just make the portions smaller.
