Chickpea and goat cheese salad

We've decided on a salad again tonight since (once again) it is going to be a very hot day. I am also coming to quite enjoy those hearty salads that are meal in itself.

Once again I've gone to my "Mmmm ... salad" cookbook and have found a salad that looks like it will be rather hearty and yummy.

Here's the RECIPE for our dinner tonight:

  • 1 can chickpeas drained
  • 2 spring onions finely chopped
  • 50g red peppers (capsicum) diced
  • 15ml / 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • 100g cherry tomatoes sliced in half
  • 50g rocket
  • 30g goat cheese sliced or crumbled to serve

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon runny honey
  • 1 clove garlic peeled and crushed or finely chopped

  • Rinse the chickpeas and put into a bowl.
  • Add spring onions, red pepper, parsley and cherry tomatoes, mix well.
  • To make dressing, which together the oil, vinegar, honey and garlic and stir into the chickpeas.
  • Serve on a bed of rocket with the goat cheese sprinkled over.

I forgot to buy parsley when I went to the grocery store, so I just used the leftover coriander paste that I had from the bean and feta cheese that I made the other day.

Instead of cherry tomatoes, I used grape tomatoes just because I think grape tomatoes taste better and I like them better. :-)
