✅ Ultra quick and healthy salad for the summer

✅ Vegan

Did you know that you should consume 1 portion of legumes a day? That’s because they are an amazing plant-based source of iron and protein. This food category includes beans, chickpeas, peas, lentils, soy, and many more.

We always used to struggle to hit that goal, but since I’ve discovered that my son loves beans served cold (not so much hot in a stew or chilli... weird child 😅). I’ve been making lots of salads using different types of beans and chickpeas. What’s best is that you get a super fresh, balanced and delicious meal in absolutely no time! Exactly what you want when it’s hot outside and you have two little cranky children to look after!

So here is one I often make just to give you some inspiration for your own salad creations!
