LYCHEES, CHILI, CHICKPEAS AND GRAPEFRUIT SALAD (Salade de litchis, chili, pois-chiche et pamplemousse)

LYCHEES, CHILI, CHICKPEAS AND GRAPEFRUIT SALAD 
(Salade de litchis, chili, pois-chiche et pamplemousse)


Don't hesitate to buy lychees in cans. I do like them like that actually. They have a pleasant sweetness side. Recently, the weather had been absolutely dreadful in London but I still wanted to eat a salad. I went for the comforting chickpeas with the avocado. To add a sweet touch, I added lychees and some grapefruits. A little chili for the kick and ta dah!, my invigorating salad was born...

Wine pairing : Jurançon (Dry white) from the South West.
