Chickpea, avocado & red cabbage salad! Health boost in a bowl πŸ’š

March 13, 2016

Chickpeas are one of my favourite additions to any salad. They are packed with protein, fibre, iron and phosphorus, and are so filling and tasty too! You can buy them dry and boil them up until tender, but in a world where time is of the essence, I prefer to buy them pre-cooked and just rinse them thoroughly in fresh running water before adding them to my dishes.

Here is a super simple, healthy and colourful salad for the whole family to enjoy!

Ingredients – (enough for 4)

– 1 jar of precooked Chickpeas (washed & drained)

– 1 small red cabbage

– 1 ripe avocado

– Mixed salad leaves

– Bunch of fresh dill

– Bunch of fresh mint

Dressing-

– 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

– 1 tablespoon Balsamic vinegar

– 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

– 1 teaspoon honey

– Sea salt & ground pepper

Method-

– Roughly chop the red cabbage. Add to a large salad bowl. Add a little sea salt and apple vinegar. Mix well.

– Add the salad leaves to the cabbage.

– Use a teaspoon to spoon in little pieces of the avocado to the salad.

– Add the washed & drained chickpeas.

– Make the desssing by adding the olive oil, vinegar, mustard & honey to an empty jar. Add lid and shake until it forms a creamy sauce.

– Pour over the salad, mix well, add sea salt & ground pepper to taste. Sprinkle on generous amount of chopped dill and mint.

You can add grilled chicken, tuna, baked salmon or just enjoy it as it is! Crunchy, healthy and scrumptious.

Enjoy! xxxx
