Celebrate Chip Week and use up your leftovers!

Thursday 20th February 2014

It’s Chip Week this week! 

A week to celebrate the nation's favourite potato delights and most importantly eat LOTS of chips! But what do you do with those other leftovers? Love Food Hate Waste have got a great recipe to use up leftovers from your Sunday roast (served up with chips of course!) 

Leftover Roast Beef Salad with Fat Cut Chips and Horseradish Mayo Dressing

The beef can be substituted for your favourite meat, with a dressing to suit. 


  • Leftover cold roast beef
  • 600g Fluffy potatoes such as King Edward or Maris Piper potatoes
  • 2 tbsps vegetable oil
  • 1-2 bags of mixed salad leaves e.g. lambs lettuce, rocket or pea shoots

For the dressing

  • 4 tsps grated horseradish or to taste
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2-3 tbsps low fat mayonnaise
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat the oven to 220C. Meanwhile peel and cut the potatoes into fat cut chips and lightly coat in a little olive oil on a non stick roasting tray. Cook for 30 minutes turning occasionally.

Next make the dressing by combining the olive oil, lemon juice, horseradish and salt and pepper, mix well. 

To serve, dress the salad leaves and top with thin slices of beef drizzled with more dressing. Serve with the hot oven chips.

Tips: A clean screw top jar makes a great ‘shaker’ to mix this dressing in.
