Healthy Summer Salad
February 25, 2013
I made this healthy Summer salad for dinner last night. The warm weather called for a light meal, quick and healthy. If you are a regular reader you will know that Sunday night is Dumpling Night in our home. It is a tradition we have had for more than a year now. While I love not cooking on Sunday night, I do get sick of dumplings. My two little boys adore them, and love our Sunday night tradition so it stays… Last night after a warm day and a heavy workload across the weekend I was craving a wholesome boost.
I collected the beautiful tomatoes and zucchini for the salad from my vegetable garden.
Combine by whisking with a fork
I enjoyed the nutty flavour and crisp textures in this salad. I realised when eating it, and after a quick google search of A Fresh Legacy – A leaf from my garden, that I have previously published a recipe where I prepare the chick peas in the same way.
The other salad recipe was a Haloumi Salad. Not as wholesome, but very tasty. Unwittingly, I even photographed that recipe on the same plate- oops !! Take a look below and give it a try if you love Haloumi cheese, and a little zing of chilli:
All I can say is… there are similarities in the recipes because they work! Tomatoes and chickpeas make a great combination 🙂
Have you tried chick peas in a salad?
