This salad is full of minerals and is quick and easy to put together after a hard day at work. The beetroot is a rich source of iron, whilst the mackerel is a great source of omega-3 fats that we actually need for our brains.

Ingredients

For salad:

  • 100g  beetroot, cooked and cut into wedges peeled (buy from supermarket, not in vinegar)
  • 50g of watercress or peppery salad leaves
  • 2 spring onions, sliced
  • 100g smoked mackerel fillets, broken into pieces

For dressing:

  • 10ml extra-virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp minced horseradish
  • Freshly ground salt and pepper

How To

  1. Place the beetroot, spring onions, watercress and rocket in a large bowl.
  2. Add all the ingredients of the dressing to a jar and shake.
  3. Warm up the fish under the grill for 5 minutes or in the microwave for 2 minutes.
  4. Add the fish to the salad and pour the dressing, mixing well.
  5. Serve immediately.
