All these ingredients are in season at the moment so I thought I would post this very easy salad recipe for you.
We shall call it “Doc’s Lemon and Loquat Salad Delight” ( ask Andrew what that means!)
Mix together equal quantities of cooked chickpeas and cooked brown rice.
Add sliced, deseeded loquats and some fresh diced tomatoes if you have some.
Make a salad dressing with olive oil, lemon juice, a little grated lemon zest, a little peeled chopped lemon, some crushed garlic, a spoonful of paprika, some chopped red chilli, a handful each of chopped coriander and parsley and a pinch of salt.
Mix all ingredients together and enjoy!
