Late summer is the season of opportunity to enjoy the fruits — or vegetables and herbs — of our gardening labours with fresh and colourful salads. I make my summer chickpea salad quite often at this time of year for the chance to throw in plenty of fresh peppers and herbs from my garden. Zesty and delicious, it's always a popular choice with my husband and friends on the patio table no matter how often I put it together.
This is my early submission to this month's No Croutons Required. The challenge for September is to come up with a soup or salad featuring foods grown in your garden. Fruits, vegetables and herbs are most welcome additions to your creations.
