Salads don’t have to be boring, they also don’t have to be a cold salad either. Adding in hot ingredients too can really bring a salad to life.
You can add any vegetables you wish to this dish, serve as a side to a main dish or have purely as a main meal.
Now just a quick note about the seasoning we use in this dish, we have found these seasonings from http://www.soeasyseasonings.co.uk which have all the spices you need already all included in one spice so that we only need to add a few teaspoons without rummaging the spice cupboard for lots of different ones. Their seasonings are syn free, gluten free, vegetarian, vegan, paleo friendly and all natural ingredients, no sugar, preservatives, additives or MSG, and a little goes a long way.

Roasted Veg & Chickpea Salad
- Iceburg lettuce, washed and shredded
- Baby spinach, washed
- 1 tin baby new potatoes (or when in season highly recommend getting fresh new potatoes)
- 1 tin chickpeas in water, drained and rinsed
- 2 large carrots, cut into matchsticks
- 8 cherry tomatoes, halved
- 2 teaspoons So Easy Seasonings Mediterranean blend
- Juice of 1 lime
- Preheat oven to 180°C fan.
- In a roasting tin add the potatoes, chickpeas and carrots and season with the Mediterranean blend, spray a little frylight and give the tin a little shake.
- Roast for around 15 – 20 minutes and shake them half way through cooking time. (If you prefer softer carrots then cook for longer until they are cooked to your preference, also if using fresh new potatoes cooking time may vary a little, poke a knife into the thickest part of the potato to check they are cooked).
- Place the lettuce and spinach onto your plate or bowl.
- Add the roasted veg and chickpeas and scatter in the tomatoes.
- Drizzle with the lime juice and serve while still warm either as a side dish or as a main meal.
Alternatively you can add any dressing you like or leave it off completely,
some fat free vinaigrette, balsamic vinegar or any other dressing you wish will work just as well.
