The lazy, hazy days of summer are finally here! Needless to say, you are going to need a go-to recipe that is easy to throw together, saves you time in the kitchen, keeps you cool but also packs a ton of nutrition. Well, I’m here to make all your wildest dreams come true!

 

 

Meet your new favourite summer salad. This dish is full of seasonal produce, doesn’t require you to cook a thing and comes together in 15 minutes flat. It is vegetarian, gluten-free and served cold, so it is super refreshing. But the best part is that this salad is outrageously good for your skin, which is so important during these summer months where all that sunshine can certainly take it’s toll. So here’s how the ingredients in this Chickpea, Avocado & Feta Salad will help you maintain that glowing complexion all summer long:

 

 

Chickpea-Avocado-Salad-11

 
Avocados: These are high in antioxidants that protect your skin from environmental damage and wrinkles. Avocados are also a great source of Vitamin C, which helps create collagen and elastin, which maintain the firmness of our skin.

 

Chickpea-Avocado-Salad-8
 
Lime Juice: Limes contain natural antibiotic properties so they are great for fighting back against bacteria that may cause acne. They are also high in Vitamin C, which again, helps maintain the firmness of our skin.

 


 
Parsley: This herb is high in beta-carotene, which is great for our skin’s elasticity. Beta-carotene also speeds up healing, so we can say goodbye to those pesky blemishes sooner rather than later!

 


 
Cucumber: Since cucumbers are 95 percent water, they are great for hydrating your skin. Cucumbers are also high in fibre, magnesium and potassium, which may help to reduce inflammation of the skin.

 


 
Green Onion: Can you believe that a single serving of green onions contain 259% of our daily value of Vitamin K? It’s true! Our skin needs Vitamin K to fight wrinkles and stay soft.

 

 

Convinced you should give it a try? You won’t regret it and neither will your skin. Here’s the recipe:
