Ingredients
  

  • 6 good quality lamb sausages
  • 800 g chickpeas 2 x 400g cans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 telegraph cucumber halved lengthways and sliced
  • 1 punnet cherry tomatoes halved
  • 2 roast red capsicum/pepper sliced (from the deli or jar)
  • 1/2 cup black kalamata olives
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves torn
  • 1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley roughly chopped
  • 100 g feta cheese crumbled
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1 drizzle extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 drizzle balsamic vinegar

Instructions
 

  • Preheat barbecue grill on medium heat.
  • Cook sausages for 3-4 minutes each side until well browned and cooked through.
  • Slice cooked sausages and toss with remaining salad ingredients.
  • Dress with lemon juice, extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar just before serving.

Notes

Just simply barbecue the sausages and toss with the salad. Perfect for a summers evening enjoyed with a glass of wine and friends. Be sure to buy good quality sausages for this recipe, preferably ones that are Greek-style if your butcher has them! This kind of salad would also keep really well if you wanted to prepare it the night before and take it to work in a container. You would just want to bring the dressing separately, and cool down the sausages before you added them to the other salad ingredients.
