This salad was sooooooo good if I do say so myself, and friends I DO! This gorgeous bed of greens is topped with roasted chickpeas and caramelized onion, fennel, and apples! WOOOO WEEE And it was easy!
GGH Sweet & Savory Salad:
Roasted Chick Peas-
-1 can garbanzo beans (chick peas) drained, rinsed and patted dry
-1 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
-1 pinch red chili flake
-pinch of salt and black pepper
-Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
Combine all goodies in a large bowl and drizzle with EVOO. Mix until peas are coated and shiny with oil. Spread peas out on large baking sheet and place in pre-heated 450 oven for about 15 minutes or until golden brown and crunchy.
Caramelized Fennel, Onion, Apple-
-1 large white onion sliced thin
-2 granny smith apples cored and sliced
-1 fennel cleaned, cored and sliced
-Pinch of salt
In a large skillet coated with EVOO, saute veggies until soft. Turn down heat and allow everything to turn golden brown. Stir when needed so veggies don’t stick. Add a pinch of sugar if needed!
Serve salad using caramelized mixture as the “dressing”.
