Salmon, Orange and Chickpea Salad Recipe – Quick and Healthy

I’ve made this many times both as a main and a side. It’s from an old Jill Dupleix cookbook ‘Lighten Up‘ which houses many excellent and simple recipes. A few deviations I’ve often made to the recipe below: (1) substituting salmon for pan fried haloumi or poached chicken; (2) adding shaved fennel; and (3) using baby spinach instead of rocket or a mixture of both. You can play around with the citrus quantity as well. I prefer it quite zesty. It serves 4 and you will need:

  • 600g salmon fillet, skin on
  • sea salt and pepper
  • 1 orange
  • 1 tablespoons orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon┬ázest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 400g canned chickpeas, rinsed
  • Handful of rocket leaves
  • 3 tablespoons small black olives
  • 1 tablespoon salted capers, rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons mint leaves
