Smoked Mackerel Apple Fennel Salad. I love this recipe as it reminds me of summer. It’s a light summery salad combining mackerel, apple and fennel in a yoghurt dressing. A delicious combination of flavours. Mmm.

- Thinly slice the fennel and apple and place in a bowl with 2 tbsp of the lemon juice from the dressing, toss until coated in juice.
- Mix in the red onion and mackerel.
- Divide the salad leaves between two plastic containers with lids, then heap the fennel and mackerel mixture in the centre of the leaves.
- Mix all the dressing ingredients together and spoon into a small container.

Tip: Adding lemon juice to the apple will help prevent it from turning brown, keeping it looking good until lunchtime.
