Smoked trout salad with lemon-yoghurt dressing

I just made this as summer is approaching us where I live and I thought I would share it here. It's not a particularly fancy dish, but it's healthy and definitely tastes good.

For 2 serves:

1/2 bunch of lettuce, sliced
1 lebanese cucumber, halved lengthways and sliced thinly
1 stick of celery, sliced
1 carrot, shredded into thin ribbons with a vegetable peeler
2 truss tomatoes, halved, quartered (& halve the quarters if they are big tomatoes)
1 apple,  sliced into quarters, cored and sliced finely
1 smoked whole trout
1/2 cup of greek yoghurt
juice of half a lemon

Arrange lettuce on plates, then top with cucumber slices, celery, carrot ribbons and tomato pieces. Carefully pull the flesh of the trout from each side of the ribcage with a fork (be careful not to add any of the very small bones to the salad) and arrange on top of other ingredients. Top trout pieces with apple slices, mix the yoghurt and lemon juice together in a cup (thin out with a little water if you wish) and spoon over the entire salad.
