Chickpea salad with hummus dressing

This type of food is awesome for the hot summer days that are coming up. Fresh, simple and mostly tasty as hell! Try it and tell us what you think in the comments below. Because cooking is above all improvisation!


300 gr. rocket salad  mix

150 gr. raw mushrooms

2 scallions

200 gr. of chickpeas from a can (alternatively you can boil yourselves, but mostly in summer we don’t have so much time, we prefer to chill!)

Trimmed Parmesan or Greek cheese kefalotyri

Olive oil


For the dressing:

Smashed chickpeas (hummus)

Salt, pepper

A bit of mayonnaise

Fresh parsley

Olive oil

Lemon juice



Cut all your vegetables, after you have cleaned them good with water. 



Throw all your vegetables in a big pot, the mushrooms, the chickpeas, the scallions, the tomatoes and the rocket salad, sprinkle with some olive oil and trim a bit of Parmesan or kefalotyri. 

Sprinkle some fresh parsley from you garden. It is always great to be able to have fresh herbs!


Put all the ingredients for the dressing in a mixer and stir them good until everything is resolved good. If it is too thick, put some water or more olive oil. 


Take your big bowl and move on to your balcony or garden. You can bake a bit of Italian bread and have it aside as a sidedish with some red pesto (always nice for summer).


Put a glass of white wine, wear a lot of sunscreen and you are ready to enjoy the hot summer evening! Enjoy!
