Mackerel salad

Mackerel salad recipe

A super quick recipe, I always have in my fridge enough to prepare rillettes: a box of mackerel in white wine, for an unannounced arrival of friends; this time, I took the opportunity to make this beautiful mackerel salad. I will do it again in the middle of summer, because it was very fresh, very pleasant in the mouth, with a very discreet mackerel. This fish, with its omega 3, is recognized as excellent for health, no reason to deprive yourself of it. This mackerel salad recipe will be ideal to enjoy in the middle of summer to accompany a barbecue or even a picnic under the trees. I had a friend at home who has a lot of trouble with vinegars and also mustard, I had taken a lot of risk with her, and yet she used this beautiful salad of mackerel again.
