Roasted Aubergine & Courgette Salad With Feta & Chickpeas
I adore roasted vegetables but I always tend to eat them the same way so I thought I'd try something new after eating some left over vegetables cold and still finding them delicious. I love that this is such a simple recipe that once the vegetables are roasted it takes a few minutes to put together. The flavours really compliment each other well and the Greek basil adds something really special to the dish. This salad is great for a healthy lunch or as a delicious side to go with grilled meats, each portions comes in at 265 calories.
