Project Description

For 6 starters or 2-4 main course salads you will need

2C shredded cabbage

1 can shredded tuna in salt water, undrained

1-2 pickled herring fillets, sliced into 5mm thick slices

25ml coarsely chopped parsley or a mix or parsley and celery leaves

1 stick celery thinly sliced

2-3 pickled gherkins (I like sweet-sour), sliced

1 apple, core removed, cut into matchsticks (keep peel on)

A squeeze of lemon juice, pour over the apple to prevent browning

Optional: 1 cup cubed cucumber

Extra parsley to finish

For the Dressing you need

25ml pickling liquid from the gherkins

25ml pickling liquid from the herring

100ml plain yoghurt (I used fat free, but you can use full or double cream)

100ml mayonnaise (I used low fat, but you can choose what you prefer)

To assemble

Place all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, reserving a few apple and gherkin slices to sprinkle on top when serving.

Mix the dressing ingredients and pour over the salad. Using 2 forks mix it lighty.

Place it in a serving dish, or individual bowls for a starter

Finish off with apple and gherkin slices and a few parsley leaves

Serve chilled as it is or with a crusty loaf
