This easy meal prep salad is full of yummy Greek flavours like feta, olives, walnuts and mint.


Serves 2

Ingredients

Salad

1x 400g can chickpeas, drained, rinsed and patted dry (or see alternative)

½ cucumber, diced 1cm

2 tomatoes, diced 1cm

1 capsicum, diced 1cm

1 Tbsp fresh mint, thinly sliced

2 Tbsp olives, chopped

30g feta cheese, diced 0.5cm

Juice of ¼ lemon

To top

1 Tbsp walnuts, roughly chopped

Patties (optional, alternative)

1x 400g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1 egg yolk, whisked

Zest and juice of ¼ lemon

1 tsp soy sauce

½ tsp oil

Method

1. Make salad. Toss all salad ingredients together in a medium bowl.

2. Alternatively, make chickpea patties using chickpeas.

3. Prep patties. Add chickpeas to a medium bowl and mash until a paste-like consistency (or use food processor). Combine all patty ingredients (except oil) in a medium bowl and mix together well. Using a tablespoon measure and clean, damp hands, roll mixture into patties, about 1cm thick.

4. Cook patties. Heat oil a medium, non-stick fry-pan on medium heat and cook patties for about 2 minutes each side, until golden and cooked through. Set aside on a paper towel to drain.

Fill your jar or bowl with Greek Salad (top with chickpea patties, if required) and sprinkle with walnuts.
