Ingredients

  • 400g tin chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp parmesan, finely grated
  • 100g kale, large stalks discarded

CAESAR DRESSING

  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • grated to make 2 tbsp parmesan
  • ½ clove garlic, crushed
  • 2 tbsp greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp olive oil

QUICK PICKLED ONIONS

  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 red onion, finely sliced

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Make the pickled onions by pouring the vinegar over the onions, add a pinch of salt and leave to pickle while you make the salad.

  • STEP 2

    Pat the chickpeas dry with kitchen paper, toss with 1 tsp oil, garlic powder, grated parmesan and season with lots of black pepper and a little salt. Tip onto a shallow baking tray and cook for 30-35 minutes until golden and crisp. Tip the kale into a large bowl, add 1 tbsp lemon juice and massage the kale to soften the leaves a little.

  • STEP 3

    To make the dressing mix all the ingredients with the remaining lemon juice, and some seasoning. Add a little water to the dressing to make it pourable. Drizzle half into the kale and toss until all the leaves are coated. Divide between two plates and add the crisp chickpeas to the salad. Top with the pickled onions and remaining dressing.
