Easy and delicious warm potato salad with smoked mackerel proves that salad doesn't have to be boring or drenched in calorific dressings to make it palatable. Potato salad is the best sidedish for mackerel as it cuts through the saltiness of the smoked fish. Not only that but potato salad is easy to make and on the table in only 15 minutes - great for a mid-week dinner. The potato salad will keep in the fridge for a couple of days so you can have leftovers for lunch too.
