  1. Rinse and drain the chickpeas, then pat dry with kitchen paper. Tip onto a plate and crush roughly with a fork. Drain the peppers, then roughly chop. Mix the mashed chickpeas and peppers with the remaining ingredients, plus some seasoning.

  2. Serve in one big bowl, or four small ones so everyone has their own portion.

The dressing is quite plain so i would add one to the salad. Dont understand the mashed chickpeas. Much tastier without mashing them. Added prawns garlic and chili sauce to spice it up.

Brilliant salad! Healthy and nutritious. Tastes insanely great with a Tahini style dressing. Have tried it by and tastes brilliant.

Does anyone think that this would taste as good without the parsley or is it an essential ingredient?

Thanks for your question. If you don't like parsley, you could leave it out or substitute for something you like better. Coriander would be a good alternative.
