The Best Summer Salad

Slovenia's bracing for a heatwave this week with temperatures up to 38°C and it is impossible to stand in the kitchen and cook a large meal. I am so sad that I haven't baked anything in a week, but I just can't turn the oven on. So daily desserts are popsicles or ice cream. And no one complains, obviously.

This gorgeous salad is my favorite lunch these days because it is so refreshing and tasty. It is also a great go to meal that I love to take to work.

You need:

1 onion
1 cucumber
1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 can sweet corn, drained and rinsed
3 tomatoes
1 or 2 red bell peppers

Cut all of the vegetables in bite sized pieces and add the chickpeas. Mix well, add the dressing and you're done. It's so easy.

For the Parsley-Lime Dressing:
1 cup parsley, finely chopped
2 table spoons lemon juice
2 table spoons white wine vinegar
1 tea spoon salt
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup olive oil
Put everything in a small sized bowl and mix well. You can also put everything in a dressing shaker and shake it through.
