A tasty summer salad from Rachel Green 23 May

Summer Super Pea Salad

Serves 4

You'll need

  • 4 medium raw beetroot
  • 2-3 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 200g new potatoes, boiled
  • 1 small head broccoli
  • 175g peas
  • 4 plain or peppered mackerel fillets
  • A handful of rocket leaves
  • 100g mixed salad leaves
  • 8 cherry tomatoes cut in half
  • Alfalfa shoots, to decorate (optional)
  • Rapeseed oil or lemon dressing
  • Sea salt and black pepper

For the lemon dressing:

  • Juice of a lemon
  • 2 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • Sea salt and black pepper

Mix all of the ingredients together

For the horseradish sauce:

  • 2 tbsp low fat Greek Yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp creamed horseradish sauce
  • Black pepper (optional)

Mix all of the ingredients together

What to do

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4
  2. Roast the beetroot; place the beetroot and rapeseed oil in a foil parcel and place in a medium sized roasting tray, making sure the beetroot is well coated in oil. Roast for 45-50 minutes or until the beetroot feels tender. Leave to cool, and then skin and cut into bite size pieces.
  3. Cut the boiled potatoes in half, then blanch the broccoli in a pan of boiling, salted water for 1 minute, then add the peas and cook for a further minute. Drain, then plunge the vegetables into ice cold water and drain in a colander.
  4. Prepare the mackerel by removing the skin and breaking into smallish pieces
  5. Assemble the salad on a plate, using the potato, beetroot, peas, broccoli, rocket, salad leaves and cherry tomatoes. Drizzle with lemon dressing and spoon on some of the horseradish sauce, season with black pepper and garnish with alfalfa sprouts.

Top tip from the chef: If you don't wish to roast the beetroot, you could buy and use pre-cooked beetroot! This is also good if you serve the smoked mackerel hot with the salad.
