There’s nothing better than a good salad in the Summer months, so I thought I’d share with you one of my favourite recipes. This Mackerel salad is fabulous for those following a clean diet, with plenty of good and healthy fats in there. Perfect for those summer nights to dine al fresco with loved ones.
If you’ve never tried roasted radishes, you haven’t lived. I had only used them raw in salads before now, but heard about roasting them and thought I’d give it a go. I’m so glad I did! It is such a tasty dish.
500g new potatoes, halved
5 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp greek-style yogurt
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 garlic cloves, crushed
Handful of fresh dill, finely chopped
160g mixed salad leaves
400g of smoked peppered mackerel fillets, skin removed
Heat oven to 200C fan. Put the radishes and potatoes in a roasting tin. Drizzle with a 2 tbsp of olive oil and season. Roast in the oven for 30 mins until tender and golden.
Meanwhile, make the dressing by whisking together the remaining olive oil, greek-style yogurt, lemon juice, garlic and dill. Season and set aside.
Remove the vegetables from the oven and allow to cool for 5 mins. Toss the mixed salad leaves in the dressing and serve. Top the salad leaves with the roasted vegetables, then flake the mackerel over the top.
Garnish with a little chopped dill and serve.
