Bold Little Salad


Here's a great salad which is really simple to throw together for a quick and tasty outdoor lunch or light dinner. The ingredients are summery yet the flavor simply shouts at you from the plate- that's how bold and intense this little salad is!
We enjoyed it alfresco for lunch yesterday with a glass of Bordeaux.

Here's the recipe:

Bold Little Salad
Serves 3-4

2 cans of chickpeas (400g per can)
1 bunch of parsley, chopped
3 spring onions, chopped
leftover roast chicken, or from your rotisserie counter, shredded
4-5 tbsps capers
15-20 cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered, depending on their size
juice of half a lemon
50 ml extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Simply throw all the ingredients into a large bowl, give everything a good stir and serve!
