Method

Cook the potatoes in salted boiling water until tender. Drain and leave to cool a little then slice into bite sized pieces.

Take a large mixing bowl and whisk together all the ingredients for the dressing. Whilst the potatoes are still warm toss them into the dressing along with the spring onions.

Roughly chop the watercress, fold into the salad with the beetroot but don’t mix to vigorously otherwise the salad will go pink. Just before serving sprinkle over the cress and serve.

"I’m so excited to share this recipe with you, it’s such a winner! It’s so quick to throw together and so satisfying. I love using potatoes instead of noodles, it’s a really fun twist on the dish and a nice new way to use a simple ingredient. The flavours in this are so great too – the mix of sesame, ginger, chilli and coriander with spring onions, peppers, kale and mushrooms is just so delicious. Can’t wait to hear what you all think!"
