Super Salad Saturday - Easy Mackerel Salad

Posted on a Sunday, but what is a day here or there!

This is super quick and super healthy with a mix of green leafy salad and oily fish. The only ingredients (for one portion) are:

Two handfuls of lettuce or leafy salad greens (any type you like)
Two handfuls of baby spinach
Teaspoon each of olive oil and lemon juice
Tin of mackerel fillets in spicy tomato sauce

Put the lettuce and spinach into a bowl. Mix the olive oil and lemon juice and drizzle over the top of the leaves. Open the can of mackerel. Tip on top of leaves.

Done! Five minutes maximum and with practice could be done in two!
The dressing stops the leaves being too dry and the lemon gives a little kick. The mackerel in spicy tomato sauce gives loads of flavour. The fish is packed with protein and healthy fat and spinach is a superfood! Add some nice wholemeal or seeded bread on the side and the mix of complex carbs and protein in the fish will keep energy levels up for hours.
