Summer is here at last. This year, for the first time, I have started to realise just how delicious a salad can be. Chicory has long stared out at me from the supermarket shelf and last week was the first time that I walked over, picked it up and put it in my basket. This salad really was delicious, filling and perfect for a hot summers day. Ingredients (serves 2) 8 chicory leaves, washed 1/2 avocado, sliced lengthways 1/4 red onion, finely sliced 2 tbsp red wine vinegar 6 new potatoes 2 smoked Mackerel fillets Handful of pea shoots Sea salt and black pepper Method 1. Boil new potatoes in hot salted water for 25 minutes, or until soft 2. Meanwhile, place the red onion in a small bowl. Cover with red wine vinegar and a sprinkle of sea salt 3. Drain potatoes and assemble salad on the plate. Enjoy!
