Chickpea and Salmon Salad

2 Aug

Drool.  I had the best salad for lunch today!  I wish I took a picture to share with you…  Hmmm lemme see… *googles*  It looked similar to this except it had feta and salmon:

Look delicious?  Try it!


1/2 cup of canned chickpeas (drained & rinsed)

5 cherry tomatoes (halved)

1/4 of a cucumber (sliced and halved)

30g of low fat feta (crumbled)

1/4 of an avocado (diced)

1/2 cup of parsley (roughly chopped)

105g tin of pink salmon


White wine vinegar

Olive oil

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and drizzle over olive oil, white whine vinegar and lemon juice.   You can add red onion if you like but I prefer to stay away from onion breath at work.  😉

Total meal is just over 420 cals and full of low GI and good fats delciousness!

    Yum! I do love my chickpeas haha 😀
    I think I’ll have this during this week some time – replacing salmon with tuna though!

      You do? I would never have known! 😉

      Salmon is better for a calcium (1/2 a cup serving has the same amount of calcium as a glass of milk) and omega 3 boost! Plus it’s so much tastier than boring tuna. 😀

    That sounds amazing! I think I am going to try it with a can of 4 bean mix instead of chickpeas though.
