  1. This recipe sounds delicious.

    I guess you could use the basic ingredients and change the fish and use tuna or smoked salmon and change the chick peas as you suggest, to get loads of different variations.

    I can see myself with a plate of your smoked mackerel salad, sat on the decking with an ice cold Bud. Heaven!

    1. Yes of course, that’s the nice thing about salads… they are very interchangeable. It’s completely delicious.
