"The fish we eat in Denmark—mackerel, herring, salmon—have beneficial omega-3 oils," says Trina Hahnemann. Any smoked fish will work well in the sweet-salty salad here.

  1. 1/2 cup 2 percent plain Greek yogurt
  2. 3 tablespoons grated fresh horseradish
  3. 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  4. 1 1/2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  5. 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  6. 9 ounces smoked mackerel, skinned and flaked (2 cups)
  7. One 12-ounce seedless cucumber, peeled and finely diced (2 cups)
  8. 5 large radishes, cut into matchsticks
  9. 1 large Granny Smith apple, diced
  10. 2 tablespoons snipped chives
  11. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  12. 1 head romaine lettuce
  1. In a bowl, whisk the yogurt, horseradish, lemon juice, vinegar and sugar. Fold in the fish, cucumber, radishes, apple and chives; season with salt and pepper. Top the lettuce leaves with the salad and serve.
