Hi lovelies! I hope you have had an amazing weekend? Mine haven’t exactly been the best to be honest, but there is only 8 days until I am going to LA, so it is impossible for me to be in a bad mood. I am so excited to go back! I can’t wait to explore the city some more and enjoy lots of amazing food + go shopping (haha I always spend too much when I travel to the US) and enjoy the beaches, sunny weather and high temperatures! The weather is pretty shitty here in Denmark again (surprise!), but when eating this colorful summer salad you might be able to forget about the rain for a little while – haha smooth transition right?! ;)

Directions:
Simply add all ingredients to a bowl and toss. I like to serve the salad with a bit of balsamic reduction instead of dressing (I just use a store-bought one), it adds the most delicious flavor to summer salads like this one. Enjoy!

This colorful salad with cantaloup melon and prosciutto is so fresh, summery and full of flavor! As you have probably noticed I absolutely love making salads with melon and berries during summer, they just add so much flavor and I am obsessed with combining sweet fruit with salty ingredients like feta or prosciutto – it is just too delicious! ❤︎

You can find the recipe over on the Danish fashion magazine Costume’s website, where I share two brand new recipes every month:

Delicious and protein-rich chickpea salad – perfect for mealprepping!

Delicious and protein-rich chickpea salad - perfect for foodprepping!

As some on you might have noticed from my snapchat (mokai_giraf) I am completely obsessed with trying new salad recipes at the moment! I have made so many new yummy salads that I cannot wait to share with you guys! Haha a lot of them contains feta (because feta is pretty much the best thing ever), buuut I am trying to make a lot of feta’less ones as well for those of you who prefer that and also just to keep myself from eating crazy amounts of feta all day everyday ;)

One of the salads that does contain feta though is this delicious chickpea salad. I love that it is beyond easy to make, full of protein from the chickpeas + it is just so delicious and flavorful! The best part is that it is perfect for meal prepping as you can make a big batch and it won’t get all soggy in the fridge! I have kept mine in the fridge for 3 days (I made a big batch, but it was still gone quite fast) and it stays perfectly fresh and crisp – even with the dressing mixed in :)

Make sure you check out my favorite watermelon summer salad as well, it is beyond delicious! 

Delicious and protein-rich chickpea salad - perfect for foodprepping!

Ingredients, 2-4 servings as a side:
1 can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/2 red onion*
1/2 cucumber
1/2 red bell pepper
1 handful fresh herbs**
75 grams (2.65 ounces) of feta, crumbled
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 clove of garlic, crushed
Salt + pepper

*adjust amounts to your liking, I have been told I tend to go overboard with onion ;)
**I prefer to use either fresh basil, flat leaf parsley or cilantro

Delicious and protein-rich chickpea salad - perfect for foodprepping!

Directions:
Simply add the chickpeas to a bowl and top them with the chopped cucumber, red bell pepper, red onion and fresh herbs of your choice. Then whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt + pepper and pour it over the salad. Mix well so everything is coated and either serve right away with the crumbled feta cheese or let it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours to let the dressing really marinate everything. Enjoy!

Fresh and summery watermelon salad

If you follow me on snapchat, then you already know how much I love this DELICIOUS watermelon salad!! Haha I have pretty much been eating it all week and I still want more! It is super simple and easy to make, but so damn delicious, I have yet to serve it to someone who didn’t absolutely love it ❤︎

It is perfect to serve as a starter or as a side dish on a warm summer day, not that the weather have been stopping me from eating it this week, haha it has been pouring down all day everyday! I am pretty okay with the shitty weather though, my sister and I just booked another LA trip and we will be going back there in August (YAY!!!), so that definitely makes the weather a lot more bearable! Eek I cannot wait to go back, I don’t remember the last time I was this excited about anything – okay actually it was probably just before our last LA trip ;) It is good to have something to look forward to, especially when the trip means that I need to work my ass off to get all my deadlines done before we leave – which is also why the shitty weather is all good, haha it doesn’t feel as bad having stay inside and work all day when it is pouring down.
