Mackerel and Apple Salad


Ingredients:

4 small red apples

4 ripe avocados, cubed (1/2 inch)

2 large handfuls of greens (spinach, arugula, lettuce), and dill to garnish (optional)

Ingredients for the dressing:

3 tbsp. of extra-virgin olive oil, divided into two parts 

3 tbsp. lemon juice or apple cider vinegar 

1 tbsp. dried thyme 

1/2 tsp. salt 

1/4 tsp. pepper

2 tbsp. of butter, melted



Method:

Step 1: Make the dressing by combining the olive oil, lemon juice, thyme, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Stir to combine until completely mixed. Set aside. 

Step 2: Core the apples and slice them into thin slices using a slicer, sharp knife, or electric slicer (recommended). Cube avocado (1/2 inch cubes). Wash greens and torn into bite-sized pieces. Set aside for later use. 

Step 3: Heat up three tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat on your stovetop or an electric griddle; add the apples and cook until they are slightly browned (~5 minutes). 

Step 4: In a large mixing bowl, combine the apples and greens. Pour on olive oil dressing from a saucepan that should be heated. Toss until evenly coated with the dressing. 

Step 5: Garnish with toasted bread crumbs and chopped dill (optional)
