Are you tired of the same old salads? Here is a quick-to-put together salad which has some of our favourite superfoods in it- almonds, spinach and chick peas. Perfect for warm summer evenings when you don't want to cook. Soak the almonds for at least a couple of hours in water before preparing the salad to allow maximum absorption of their nutrients- you can also remove the skins after soaking if you wish to.

  5. Peel and chop the red onion into thin rings.

  7. Whisk all the remaining ingredients together to form a dressing.

Recipe Notes

You can omit the almonds if you are allergic to nuts. Try using some seeds instead to still have a crunchy ingredient in the salad. Other nuts can be substituted for the almonds- pecans or walnuts work well. Add or substitute different beans to also ring the changes- such as kidney beans, cannellini beans.
