How To Make Mango & Mackerel Salad

Refresh the lentils in cold water and drain thoroughly and set aside.

Now it’s time to make the dressing. Use a mixing bowl and pour in the oils, add the chillies, seeds and whisk in the lime zest and juice, season with salt and sprinkling of sugar.

Use a large salad bowl and add all the leaves, spring onions, and lentils, mix thoroughly. Dress four plates with the salad bowl ingredients, then layer with mackerel and mango in equal portions. Drip the dressing over each plate. Serve straight away and devour.

Yes, that’s right a touch of seasoning to go in to the boiling water with the lentils, I tend to use about 1tsp.
