This was one of those happy coincidences when you find you have everything you need in the cupboard or fridge. I didn’t change anything except using some garlicky olives I had open instead of plain ones and served it with hot smoked mackerel fillet and beetroot. Really tasty and will be making again.

I have made this salad twice now, once with lentils and once with white beans as my husband isn't keen on lentils. Both produce a tasty sald either for lunch, an accompaniment or a starter.
