For the salad:
½ cup red onion
1 small fennel bulb
trimmed and cored, or 1/2 large fennel
15 ounces chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
1 can, rinsed and well drained
¾ cup roasted red bell peppers
jarred, chopped, about 4 each
6 ounces artichoke hearts
marinated, 1 jar, rinsed, drained, and quartered, if whole
3 cups arugula (roquette)
¾ cup parsley leaves
flat and fresh
2 ounces black olives
pitted and sliced, about 1/4 cup
cup Parmesan cheese
For the dressing:
1 clove garlic
½ teaspoon salt
or to taste
1 ½ teaspoons orange zest
freshly grated
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 x black pepper
freshly ground to taste
5 tablespoons olive oil, extra-virgin


To make the salad:

Soak the minced onions in cold water for 10 minutes, then drain well, pat dry, and put in a serving bowl.

Meanwhile, make the dressing:

Smash the garlic clove, sprinkle with ½ teaspoon of the salt, and, with the side of a large knife, mash and smear the mixture to a coarse paste.

Put the paste in a bowl and add the orange zest, vinegar, lemon juice, salt and black pepper, to taste.

Slowly whisk in the olive oil, make a slightly thick dressing.

Thinly slice the fennel lengthwise.

Add to the onion and toss with the chickpeas, peppers, artichoke hearts, arugula, parsley, and dressing.

Evenly arrange the olives and shave the Parmigiano-Reggiano over the top.

Made this salad for a light dinner last night. We didn't have fennel, so omitted it. It was quite tasty, peppery arugula, meaty chickpeas, smoky roasted bell peppers and marinated artichoke hearts were an absolutely delicious combination, and the salad was tossed with this light yet flavorful dressing, delicious. Will be making it again for sure.
