  • A large handful of Spinach
  • 1/2 a red pepper sliced
  • 1 stick of celery chopped
  • 100g of smoked mackerel
  • 1/2 an avocado mashed
  • 4 tablespoons of Extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon

Assemble the rest of the ingredients in a bowl and pour over the dressing. It’s that simple.
