Monday is gym night so dinner needs to be quick and easy (or lovingly prepared by Stephen but he selfishly decided to go out this evening). Rather than reaching for the toast which is what normally happens when I’m eating alone, I decided to “be good” and eat salad. I usually have this for lunch a couple of times a week but today I had the leek and potato soup (ok but not brilliant) so had everything I needed in the fridge including my two favourite ingredients: avocado and smoked mackerel.

The avocado breaks all the food-mile-rules but having only recently discovered I like it, I can’t get enough of it. Smoked mackerel is my favourite protein to add to salad because the oiliness means there is no need to make dressing. I like the contrast of the peppery mackerel with the cool, crunchy salad too.

  1. Hi Kerri, your salad look very yummy. I think avocado and mackerel go together very nicely.

    lovely picture. I’ve re-discovered smoked mackerel recently too, and with avocado I’ve dressed it with wasabi, a drop of water, spring onion and lime juice (no need for oil) and it’s really good – the heat and the lime cuts through the oilyness of the fish really well.

    Thanks Caramella, I really enjoyed it.

    That’s a great idea L, thanks.
