This simple chickpea salad bowl is so easy to prepare and makes a delicious and healthy side dish or lunch. As there are only a few simple ingredients, buying good quality Spanish chickpeas makes all the difference in this recipe. This chickpea salad bowl can be prepared in advance, then mixed with some rocket leaves before serving.
Chickpeas are an excellent source of fibre and protein, and are low in fat, helping to keep you feeling full and satisfied for longer.

Black olives add a natural saltiness to the salad, and fresh parsley adds an aromatic and punchy flavour.
