Chickpea Salad with Kaffir & Sundried Tomato Dressing


Summer is approaching and salads are calling!! This is an amazing salad, if I can say so myself.

Thermomix method:


1000g cooked chickpeas
3 cloves garlic
5 kaffir lime leaves
60g sun dried tomatoes
2 tsp Celtic salt
55g lemon juice
100g olive oil
1 Tbs honey
large handful of roughly chopped coriander (or parsley if you aren't a fan of my favorite herb)
  • Place the garlic, kaffir lime leaves, sun dried tomatoes, salt, lemon juice, olive oil and honey into the TM bowl and blend for 10sec/speed 8. Scrape down the sides and blend  for another 10sec/speed 6.
  • Pour the dressing over the chickpeas and add the coriander. Mix through and serve!! I like to add a squeeze of lemon juice on top each individual serve and a sprinkle of cayenne :)
Conventional Method:

5 cups cooked chickpeas
3 cloves garlic
5 kaffir lime leaves
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes, packed
2 tsp Celtic salt
Juice of 1 large lemon
1/2 cup olive oil
1 Tbs honey
large handful of roughly chopped coriander/parsley
  • In a high power blender or small food processor (you know the ones that go onto the end of your brain/barmix stick), blend up the garlic, kaffir limes leaves, sun dried tomatoes, salt, lemon juice, olive oil and honey until all blended together well and there are no big junks.
  • Pour on top of the chickpeas and add the coriander. Mix together and serve! I like to add a squeeze of lemon juice on top of each individual serve and a sprinkle of cayenne :)
