A filling and flavoursome Turkish-inspired salad by Sevtap Yuce

Turkish zucchini and chickpea salad by Sevtap Yuce

In Turkey, when chickpeas start coming into season, you will see people selling bunches of freshly picked chickpeas. This salad can be enjoyed for lunch or dinner, with soft cheese and good crusty bread.

Serves: 4

Ingredients

Nothing beats using your own fresh produce or materials around the house.
If you’re missing a thing or two, tick the items you need to add to your shopping list.

What to do

  • 1. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a high heat. Fry the zucchini for 4–5 minutes, or until soft – if you can get the right high heat to turn your zucchini brown, you will get a deep, sweet flavour.

  • 2. Add the capsicum, then stir and cook for a few minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.

  • 3. In a bowl, mix the remaining ingredients together. Add the zucchini and capsicum and season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Fold through and serve.
