Last of the summer sandwiches. This was an absolute winner of a lunch! It was so quick to make BUT so so tasty!

So let me tell you whats inside! Spicy baked chickpeas, spinach leaves, fresh tomato, crunchy cucumber, soft avocado, and homemade tahini dressing, in a toasted pitta 🥙

Whilst your chickpeas bake, whip together your tahnini dressing to go on your pitta. This lunch is not only healthy, its fresh and light. The crispy pitta holds together the crunch salad with the oozings of tahini dressing. PERFECTION.

You can vary your salad items depending on what you like, but this combination worked perfectly with the flavours of the tahini dressing.

This dish is the perfect vegetarian lunch, which is full of protein and healthy fresh salad.
