PROTEIN-RICH TOMATO AND BASIL SALAD



 INGREDIENTS:

  1 pint cherry tomatoes 

  Salt to taste

  3 tablespoons avocado or extra virgin olive oil

  1 ½ tablespoons grainy mustard

  1 ½ tablespoon fresh lemon juice or vinegar

  1 large avocado, cubed

  ½ cup marinated artichoke hearts, quartered

  1 cup chickpeas

  6 mint leaves, chiffonade

  7 basil leaves, chiffonade

  1/3 cup pistachios, chopped

  Black pepper to taste

 

 

DIRECTION :

 Transfer the tomatoes to a large sieve.  Add a generous pinch of salt.  Rub the tomatoes to coat them evenly with the salt.  Let drain for at least 15 minutes.  Rub them again, pressing lightly to remove more of their juice.

Add the juice from the tomatoes, avocado oil, whole grain mustard and lemon juice to a medium bowl and mix well to combine.  Stir in tomatoes, avocado, artichoke hearts, chickpeas, mint, basil and pistachios.  Season with salt and pepper

  Enjoy.
