Easy, Mediterranean Chickpea Pesto Salad.

Dearest Reader,

Before visiting Italy three weeks ago, I hated olives with all my being. Then, I ate some Italian dishes that served up olives in a fresh way, so I thought it would be a good idea to do a twist on a salad I posted earlier here for a completely different flavour profile. It is a great salad, for summer, but to be honest, you can make it anytime and it will feel like the perfect time for it.  

Mediterranean Chickpea Pesto Salad Serves 4


240g Chickpeas
1 big Tomato (roughly chopped in square inch pieces)
0.5 big Red Bell Pepper
1 handful of Cucumber
1 Avocado
10 olives (chopped in quarters)
1 tsp of Capers
1 tsp Green onions (dried or fresh)
1 tbsp Basil Pesto (I use fresh but store bought is fine)
1 tsp Pesto Rosso (I use fresh but store bought is fine)
Salt and Pepper to taste


Mix together and serve!

Easy, delicious and healthy! 

Bon Appetite.
