Summer rocket, chickpeas and tomatoes salad

Summer rocket, chickpeas and tomatoes salad

A delicious and filling side salad, perfect with fish, or even on its own, for a light dinner or lunch if you have over indulged.

Rocket (arugula), is one of the most nutritious green vegetables around, rich in folates, vitamin K, magnesium and iron and its distinctive peppery taste will add texture to the simplest of the salads. Tomatoes are rich in vitamin A, anti-oxidants and vitamin C. Chickpeas on the other hand, add filling power and good qualities vegetable proteins, important to keep you fuller for longer. It is incredible how you can get so much nutrition in a such a simple salad!

Preparation time 5 min

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • good quality, extra-virgin olive oil

Simply place all the ingredients in a salad bowl, season and serve. I would suggest a nice fresh grilled mackerel on the side or some white fish like hake, smoked haddock or anything that come up to your mind.

If you like to eat a small slice of bread with it, we would suggest a slice of Poilane sourdough rye sliced bread, filling and tasty (rye do contains gluten, please choose a gluten-free bread variety, if you want this meal to be gluten-free).
