Black Pudding Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing By Sinéad Smyth

Black Pudding Salad

This is a super simple salad to whip up if you’re in a hurry and craving something really tasty. It’s great as a stand-alone dish or as a side salad to a main dish such as roast pork. I love the combination of hot and cold so this salad is a definite winner in my books, mixing sweet and ziggy flavours with creamy Gubbean cheese and crisp apple.

The warm crisp black pudding works so well with the fresh and zesty salad leaves, while the apple and radish give a lovely crunch.  You can use whatever salad leaves you prefer, personally, I like mixed leaves for the colour they bring to the dish. Usually, I make double the amount of the dressing and keep it for another salad.

For the dressing
– 1 tbsp SuperValu Signature Tastes Honey Whole Grain Mustard
– 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
– Fresh lemon juice
– Freshly ground black pepper & salt, to taste

For the salad
– 100g SuperValu Signature Tastes Black Pudding
– 50g SuperValu Signature Tastes Gubbeen Cheese
– 1 Bag of mixed leaves
– 2 Radishes, thinly sliced
– 1/2 Apple, thinly sliced
– Olive oil, for frying

For the dressing
1. Add the mustard and olive oil into a bowl and mix together
2. Add freshly squeezed pepper, black pepper and salt to taste
3. Set aside

For the salad
1. Using the wide side of a box grater, thinly slice the radishes (you can use this for the apple too if you like thinner slices).
2. Cut an apple in half and thinly slice – squeeze some lemon juice on top to stop them browning.
3. Cut the Gubbeen into cubes.
4. Add the salad leaves, Gubbeen, radish and apple into a bowl and coat in the mustard dressing.
5. Arrange the salad leaves on a serving plate.
6. Heat some olive oil in a frying pan on a medium heat.
7. Crumble in the black pudding and fry until crisp.
8. Sprinkle the black pudding on top of the salad and enjoy!
