Arugula with Smoked Fish


Here is another tasty, quick salad you can throw together in the matter of minutes, whether as lunch or a quick dinner. Smoked fish keeps well in the fridge for a week (or longer, just look at the expiry date) and is such a versatile food that can be plugged-in to so many things; salads, sandwiches, dips, or a snack with crackers.

Go easy on the arugula (meaning: no more than 2 servings per week), if you are suffering from hypothyroidism and are on a hypothyroidism diet, as arugula is known to have slight goiterous properties.
