  • Cooking instructions. Step by step
    • Start by placing the cubed potatoes and chickpeas (cooked or canned, not raw) on an oven tray lined with parchment paper.
    • Drizzle them with olive oil, season with salt and pepper to taste, and mix well.
    • Roast in the oven at 200°C (400°F) for 20 minutes.
    • While the potatoes and chickpeas are roasting, prepare the mustard dressing: whisk together whole grain mustard and regular mustard, then slowly drizzle in olive oil, whisking constantly to emulsify, similar to making mayonnaise.
    • Stir in maple syrup and 1-2 tablespoons of water to achieve a slightly thinner consistency.
    • Next, cut the vegetables (cucumbers, kale leaves, onion) and prepare to assemble the salad.
    • To assemble the salad, combine the chopped cucumbers, diced onion, sliced kale leaves, crispy chickpeas, roasted potato cubes, and the mustard dressing in a large bowl. Toss everything together until well mixed. Enjoy your nutritious, flavorful summer salad!
