  • 2 red-skinned apples, unpeeled, cored and cut into bite-sized chunks
  • squeeze of lemon (optional)
  • good handful mixed salad leaves
  • 6 cooked baby beets, plain or spicy, halved or quartered
  • 100g smoked mackerel, flaked
  • 150g pot 0% bio-yogurt
  • 2 tsp hot horseradish sauce
  • 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • a few dill sprigs


  1. If not eating straight away, toss the apple in a little lemon juice to prevent it going brown. Pile the salad leaves onto plates and top with the apple and beets.

  2. Mix the mackerel with the yogurt and horseradish sauce to make an almost mousse-like consistency. Spoon onto the salad and scatter with the seeds and dill.
