  1. In a salad bowl, mix a 150g bag of crispy lettuce leaves, such as frisée, baby spinach and lamb's lettuce, with 1 large avocado, cubed and tossed in 1 tsp lemon juice, 300g halved cherry tomatoes and a 5cm piece of cucumber, diced. In a large nonstick pan, cook 1 red onion, thinly sliced, in 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil for 5 minutes or until tender and beginning to brown. Stir in 1/2 tsp ground cumin, 1 tsp ground coriander, a pinch of ground turmeric and a drained and rinsed 400g can chickpeas. Cook, stirring all the time, for 1-2 minutes or until the spices give off a rich aroma. Remove from the heat and stir in 2 tsp lemon juice. Cool for 2 minutes, then add to the salad and toss together until well mixed. Make a simple minted yoghurt dressing by stirring 2 tsp mint sauce into 150ml plain yoghurt. Drizzle over the salad.
