Chickpea Salad with Orange recipe

Preparation Time: 5 minutes

This fresh and surprising salad is a wonderful dish for any time of the year. It's simple to put together, but the flavours work exceptionally well together.


  • 1 x 400g tin of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 200g feta cheese
  • 1 orange
  • 1 small bunch of fresh mint
  • 1 small bunch of parsley
  • 3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1 orange
  • 1 tbsp. cider vinegar
  • Salt and pepper

Method of Preparation:

  1. Cube the feta cheese. Peel the orange and remove the pith, then use your knife to segment the orange.

  2. Remove the leaves from the mint and parsley and roughly chop. Combine the chickpeas, feta, orange, mint and parsley in a large bowl.

  3. Whisk the olive oil, orange juice, vinegar, salt and pepper together. Pour over the other ingredients and toss to combine.

If you like, omit the orange and use clementines or a grapefruit. Recipe serves 2-4.
