Chick Pea Salad

Chick Pea Salad
I like adding legumes to salads, it gives them a really nice texture and the addition of the protein also creates a salad that can be eaten as a meal in itself, which I find ideal for workday lunches. This will keep well for a few days so make a batch and then you have lunch sorted for half the week.

Lovely to also serve alongside grilled meat or fish. And you probably have the ingredients in the fridge and pantry already!

This is simple to prepare with or without a Thermomix, the salad is chopped by hand, and the dressing can be mixed by shaking the ingredients together in a jar.
