This is a wonderfully simple salad, it’s filled with an amazing array of fresh flavours that come together perfectly for a pack lunch or in the evening when I want something quick and easy but still delicious.
The stir-fried chickpeas with chilly powder are full of flavour and make the salad really tasty and special. The whole thing is then brought together by the tahini, which makes the whole salad so creamy and yummylicious!
