  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 large lemon
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh basil chopped
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli flakes

salt and pepper to taste

For the salad:

  • 250 g cherry tomatoes
  • 1 medium carrot (grated or shredded)
  • 300 g cooked quinoa
  • 240 g chickpeas (1 can)
  • 1 medium cucumber (sliced or chopped)
  • 50 g vegan feta cheese
  • 120 g rocket salad
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds

  1. Combine all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl or a jar. Once combined, pour the dressing over the drained chickpeas, ensuring to coat them evenly. Set aside.

  2. Using glass jars, start layering your salad ingredients: tomatoes, carrots, quinoa. Spoon the chickpeas and any leftover dressing over the quinoa. Next, layer up your cucumber, feta cheese and rocket salad. Top up with some pumpkin seeds, sliced avocado and lemon wedge.
