This is a lovely little Moorish salad which gets the old tastebuds going – but more to the point, it's refreshingly crunchy and is right at home as a nice side salad or with a barbecue. You know, sometimes you haven't got salad leaves in your fridge, but you will probably have a couple of carrots and apples, and by getting on the Moorish vibe and using mint and tahini (a paste made out of sesame seeds which you can find in most supermarkets), I've pulled together this little combo. The reason I've stated that you should slice some ingredients and have matchsticks for others is because this really adds to the crunch. You can always use the coarse side of a grater for speed.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
