2 potatoes, peeled and cut in half   400 g
1/2 cup green/snap beans   50 g
1 tomatoes, diced   120 g
120 g mackerel, canned    
3 tbsp Classic Vinaigrette (Recipe)   45 mL
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    


  1. Prepare the vegetables: peel the potatoes and cut them in half; trim the ends of the green beans. Place them in a steamer basket or in a pot of salted water to either boil or steam. Let the vegetables cool down a few minutes, so they won't be so hot to handle, then chop them into bite-size pieces and put them in a salad bowl.
  2. Cut the tomatoes into small dice then add them to the bowl. Drain the mackerel fillets then add them to the salad.
  3. Pour the Classic Vinaigrette over the salad, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss the salad then serve.
