Smoked Sardine Salad with Beetroot and Apples and a Honey Mustard Dressing
Marks and Sparks are currenty selling smoked Cornish sardines, so we had them tonight in a lovely salad just bursting with goodness from our wonderful Riverford delivery - the freshest lettuce, mellow cucumber, sweet earthy beetroot, freshly boiled and still warm. Added to the mix were some finely sliced spring onions and a crisp Discovery apple. This was all tossed together with a honey and mustard dressing - a classic vinaigrette of 1 part cider vinegar to 3 parts light olive oil, a dash of honey and mustard and some salt and pepper. Just lovely for a beautiful late Summer evening.
