Scallops, Stornoway Black Pudding & Dressed Mixed Leaves

Scallops on a slate background next to illustrations of the ingredients needed to make scallops and black pudding

Treat yourself to a starter or light lunch whose flavour and nutritional rewards are in inverse proportion to the amount of effort you need to put in. Put simply, the ingredients do the work for you. The vinaigrette can be tweaked to your own preferences or to suit the season – try a pinch of cayenne or substitute the honey with more mustard, for example.
