A fantastic source of protein! I often add low-fat feta to this salad.
1 X 150g (5oz.) can chickpeas
1 X 150g (5oz.) can 3 bean mix
1 large red onion, finely diced
1 green apple
2 large celery sticks
Juice and zest of 1/2 lemon
6 egg whites
1 cucumber, diced
1 cup fresh podded peas
1/2 bunch dill, leaves picked
180g (6oz.) hot smoked salmon, flaked
1 tbsp each pumpkin and sunflower seeds
2 tbsp olive oil
Low-fat feta cheese to garnish (optional)
- Rinse and drain chickpeas and mixed beans. Place into a bowl with finely chopped red onion. Using a juicer, juice apple, 1 celery stick and 1 carrot. Mix with lemon juice and zest. Pour this juice over chickpea, bean, and onion mix, cover and refrigerate overnight.
- Lightly beat egg whites and pour into a large hot non-stick skillet (frying pan). Cook a few minutes each side, then turn the omelet out onto a board and roll up. Allow to cool and slice finely.
- Drain the chickpea and bean mixture. Place into a large bowl, retaining the liquid. Add 1 diced cucumber, 1 diced celery stick, 1 diced carrot and the smoked salmon with all remaining ingredients.
- Whisk half of the reserved liquid with olive oil and drizzle over the salad to serve. Crumble feta over the top if desired.
