Yellow Cherry Toms, Tinned Mackerel and Taralli Salad

A quick, no-fuss salad with few ingredients and a great outcome. We used tinned mackerel because we like it and it is mostly handy. If you are not a mackerel fan, tuna is an ideal substitute.

Serving 2, Preparation 5 minutes

  • Yellow tomatoes, about 15
  • 1 tinned mackerel, 125 g
  • Apulian taralli, a handful
  • EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 2 tablespoons
  • Dried thyme, to taste
  • A pinch of salt
  • Fennel seeds, to taste


Halve the cherry tomatoes, drain the mackerel and break it up roughly, put everything in a bowl, two tablespoons of EVOO, a pinch of salt and dried thyme, stir. If you like some lemon juice too, why not, it’s good.
We added a handful of fennel seeds as well and then a coarse crumble of olive oil taralli pugliesi.

Enjoy your salad.
