Mixed leaf salad with Jack McCarthy’s black pudding

Jack McCarthy’s black pudding is top class. It is an award-winning black budding so much so that it is celebrated by the Knights of Black Pudding in France! Today I will be using some very simple ingredients and as the whispers of Summer are coming in it will be a divine salad that you can whip up on the warmer evenings! Nothing says Cork more than a trip to the English Market!
