Liven up your lunchbox with this super healthy, super simple mackerel and potato salad. Because who really liked lettuce anyway.
You will need (for one generous portion):
1 tin mackerel in olive oil
Handful of baby/new potatoes
1 tomato, quartered and halved
Any leftover salad or vegetables – we used cooked brussel sprouts and cucumber but avocado, broccoli and green beans also work well
Crushed black pepper (lots of it)
Fresh lemon (bottled lemon juice also works fine)
- Halve or cut the potatoes into decent-sized chunks.
- Empty into a saucepan and cover with boiling water. Simmer until tender and drain.
- Flake the mackerel into a bowl, along with all of the oil from the tin.
- Add the veg, lemon juice, black pepper and salt. Mix well.
