Salads are a dish that can be served warm or cold, as a side or in this case, can easily be the main event. I am such a huge fan of making ‘plant food’ the centre of any meal. For so long, the meat or protein component of a meal has been the centre piece and the poor old salad or vegetable component, delegated to a side dish. I made this dish recently for some friends who came for lunch. This warming salad was the centre piece and was served with a side of roast chicken pieces. It does have chickpeas in the dish, along with goats feta, so it’s ‘hearty’ enough to be served on its own or to vegetarians.
