This bright refreshing salad hits all the key elements of a satisfying, healthy meal for me. It's full of crisp spring radishes, toasted walnuts, creamy garbanzo beans and tossed with a tangy lemon vinaigrette - and it's simple to prepare. Avocado and summer tomatoes would be lovely additions. If you haven't tried mackerel, it's a mild fish high in omega-3's; similar in taste to tuna. Be sure to look for wild, Northern Atlantic mackerel that is low in mercury.
Combine all salad ingredients in a medium bowl. For the dressing, combine ingredients in a jar with a tight fitting lid and shake well. Toss salad with just enough dressing to coat the leaves. Season your salad with a touch of kosher salt and freshly ground pepper and divide between two plates.
*This vinaigrette makes enough for several salads. I highly recommend making the whole recipe and keeping it in your refrigerator for easy salads all week.
