Super healthy salad that requires hardly any time to make. Fantastic as a side salad or light meal.

Hello!

Today is Monday and it is definitely a salad day for me. I made one of my favourites – chickpea salad.

It’s a salad day because I had a huge Sunday Roast yesterday. Just look at that! Crisp crackling as well.

Now you know why I have to “detox” a little today.

This little salad does just the trick. It is super easy and does not require much chopping and dicing. I love this kind of salad.

I added chopped tomatoes and whole cherry tomatoes as I like how the cherry tomatoes go with the rest of the salad so I highly recommend that you add them in. This salad keeps so well in the fridge, just pack it into little containers and you are good to go!
