  • 2 heads of endive about 3 oz each
  • 5 oz smoked mackerel fillet
  • 2 oz cucumber
  • 1 medium orange
  • 2 tablespoons chopped spring onions

for the dressing:

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper


  • Separate the endive leaves and arrange five or six leaves around the edge of each serving dish or bowl.
  • Roughly chop the remaining leaves.
  • Flake the mackerel and place in a bowl with the chopped endive.
  • Cut the cucumber in 1/4 inch (5 mm) slices and cut each slice in quarters.
  • Using a sharp knife, remove the peel and white pith from the orange and divide into segments, removing as much membrane as possible and catching any juices which run out during preparation.
  • Stir the orange and spring onions into the smoked mackerel mixture.
  • Mix well, then spoon into the serving dishes.
  • Place the reserved orange juice and all the dressing ingredients into a screw-top jar and shake well to mix.
  • Alternatively, whisk the ingredients in a small basin.
  • Spoon over each salad and serve.
