Pantesca salad: this is a delicious salad that recalls the island of Pantelleria (Sicily) from which originates.
I love it for a summer meal. If you are in Pantellaria try the local one, it is super tasty!
Mackerel (called in Italian “pesce azzurro”) is common in the Mediterranean sea and highly nutritious. It is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, protein and minerals. It is belongs to my book – Honestly Healthy – Salad and Smoothies for every day meal.
