Prep time: 5 minutes

Serves 2

Handful of arugula
Handful of cooked chickpeas, drained
Handful of herbs (I used oregano, mint & parsley this time)
Handful of baby Bocconccini, drained
Handful of diced cucumber
Handful of diced fennel root
1 green onion/scallion, sliced
Half avocado, diced (Optional)

Lime Vinaigrette
Juice of half a lime
1 clove garlic, crushed
¼ tsp ground cumin
Pinch of sugar substitute (I like Splenda)
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper

1. In a large serving bowl, toss in all the ingredients except the vinaigrette.

2. In a small bowl, whisk the lime juice, cumin and garlic. While continuing to whisk, pour the oil in a steady stream to emulsify.

3. Add vinaigrette to salad and toss.
