We actually prepared the salmon in Grilled Dilled Salmon Fillets 357722 and then prepared the potato watercress salad per recipe directions, though we subbed blanched spinach for the watercress. After tasting we added a bit more horseradish for zing. We all loved these potatoes and thought they paired perfectly with our dilled salmon. We would definitely make these again! Thanks for posting.
