Proving once again that simple is best, the beauty of this dish is the juicy ripe tomatoes and fragrant oregano. I had it for the first time about 15 yrs ago on holiday in Greece and I’ve loved it ever since.
I love this salad for so many reasons! Above all... it is delicious and super healthy. It’s really easy to make, you can change it up however you like and use up any veggies you have in the fridge. Leftovers, (if there are any) make a great lunch the next day.
The inspiration for this salad is a traditional greek dish, Louvi which growing up was really not a favourite. Now I absolutely love black eye peas... maybe almost as much as chickpeas! They are just delicious with a wonderful texture and the perfect base for so many dishes. Their only downside is that for best results you need to use dried ones and that involves a little bit of effort... but I promise, it’s worth it.
Look at these beautiful rainbow radishes ... finely sliced and waiting for their honey mustard dressing. Simple but so delicious. If you think you don’t like radishes, try them with this dressing and you might just change your mind.
This salad is as delicious as it is fast and easy. Chickpeas, cherry tomatoes, black olives, toasted pine nuts and pesto. I used some I already had in the freezer so preparing this salad took even less time
