Cauliflower, Radish & Egg Salad

This is a simple and nutritious vegetarian salad that is also very filling and satisfying. It is high in protein, thanks to the combination of eggs, chickpeas and almonds. Yes the eggs, almonds and olive oil make it quite high in fat, but it is all good fat which our bodies need to stay healthy. Without fat in our diet we can not absorb vital micronutrients such as vitamins A, D, E and K. There is a lovely mix of textures helping to keep it interesting. Its a perfect meat-free meal to rustle up when you don’t have much time or energy to cook.
