Smoked Mackerel Pasta Salad with a Lemon Yoghurt Dressing

So it's back to work and easily transportable salads time! This easy and delicious pasta salad fits the bill perfectly and it contains oily fish, hitting that Vitamin D spot too!

Smoked Mackerel Pasta Salad with a Lemon Yoghurt Dressing
(from the Good Food Channel)
(Serves 4)

250g dried pasta shapes
2 spring onions, thinly sliced
4 peppered smoked mackerel fillets, flaked
200g natural yogurt       
1 tbsp horseradish,      
1/2 lemon, juice only
1 tbsp snipped fresh chives
100g cherry tomatoes, quartered
2 little gem lettuce

Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the pasta according to packet instructions. Drain and run under the cold tap, drain well. Tip into a large bowl and add the spring onions and mackerel

To make the dressing, put the yoghurt in a small bowl and stir in the horseradish, lemon juice and chives. Season to taste. Gently fold into the salad and then stir in the tomatoes. Arrange 3-5 gem leaves in the centre of each plate and place the mackerel salad on top and serve.
