Potato salad with horseradish dressing

Everyone loves potato salad, but it can be high in kilojoules and fat. This lower-fat version is made with a light fromage frais and yogurt dressing flavoured with horseradish. Toss in the dressing while the potatoes are still warm and serve garnished with bresaola (Italian dried beef).
