Smoked mackerel, celeriac and watercress salad

Serves 4 25 min
Rich smoked mackerel with clean, crunchy celeriac and apple, peppy watercress and fresh herbs. This makes a good healthy lunch or dinner and is robust enough for a packed lunch. If you don't have watercress, use peppery winter salad leaves instead. You could also add in wedges of cooked beetroot, toasted walnuts or slices or waxy salad potato.
