Tahini kale & Smoked Mackerel

Updated: Aug 29, 2023

Easy, fast, healthy & light - the perfect all-season salad.

So satisfying. Thank you! –Jane Williams

A collaboration between my daughter and me. She came up with the tahinin kale, Coco loves tahin, I like it, but not too often as it can be for me too rich, I added the smoked mackrel which we love for its healthy fats and distinct flavour but again not too often, too much, and like tahini becomes one of those foods you need a long break from.
