Main-Course Salad with Mackerel and Apples
Main-course salads are an easy, healthy, and portable choice for lunches, especially during the work week. Mackerel is packed with omega-3 fatty acids as well as protein, the cabbage with vitamin C, the spinach with iron and vitamin A, and the walnuts with protein and vitamin E. The salad is very adaptable; for example, grapes sliced in half work as well as the apples, and you can also experiment with different root vegetables and nuts. I make a big batch on the weekend and store it without the fruit and without dressing so there’s less preparation during the work week. Enjoy!
Purple cabbage, grated
1 tin of Mackerel fish (found in the supermarket near the canned tuna and sardines)
Granny Smith apple
Dressing: I usually use olive oil with some juice, mango or apple work well, and a splash of
If you want to serve this salad to guests, here’s a nice presentation. Mix all ingredients together
in a mixing bowl except the sesame seeds and the spinach. Cover the bottom of a nice serving
dish with spinach, put the mixed salad on top, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and serve.
