Loquats, lemons, parsley, coriander, garlic and chilli.

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!

The picture of the loquats comes from  Plant Answers.com

If I had seen this recipe before, you would have not received that many, Kelly! Psst.. the loquats were from Barb. I have saved a few seeds and shall put them in pots.

Maggie, thanks for the recipe. I shall watch our tree now closely. It has a few bunches that are nowhere near ripe. A month or more, maybe?
