Runner Bean, Smoked Trout and Potato Salad

So, at the beginning of October I was struggling with an overload of runner beans. I froze lots of them to last me over the winter but I also started putting them in salads and all sorts of things. A bit like the courgettes. As I'm still trying to keep my vitamin D levels up I'm still eating oily fish twice a week but it started becoming a bit difficult to find interesting recipes. If you have any suggestions please let me know. This one however, ticked all my boxes. It used oily fish and runner beans! It was also really flavourful.

Runner Bean, Smoked Trout and Potato Salad (from Good Food Magazine July 2013)
(Serves 4)

500g new potatoes, scrubbed and cut in half
300g runner beans, trimmed and sliced
4 spring onions, sliced
½ bunch parsley, roughly chopped
4 smoked trout fillets, flaked
For the dressing
50ml extra-virgin olive oil
juice ½ lemon
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tsp wholegrain mustard
1 tbsp horseradish sauce
To make the dressing, mix all the ingredients together and whisk to combine. Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the potatoes for 10-15 mins, adding the beans for the last 4-5 mins.

Toss the potatoes and beans together with half the spring onions and parsley, and half the dressing.
Put into your lunchbox and scatter over the smoked trout. Scatter over the rest of the spring onions, drizzle with the remaining dressing and serve.
