The Cobb is an all-time classic. Damn easy to make, adaptable and a salad that actually leaves you feeling satisfied. My Middle-Eastern cobb, is a tad healthier than the original and, in my humble opinion, tastier.

200g chickpeas (sprouted or tinned)
4 rashers smoked streaky bacon (or pancetta)
1 tsp. zatar
6 baby tomatoes, halved
200g romaine lettuce, sliced
15g flat leaf parsley, chopped
½ medium cucumber, quartered
2 preserved lemons, chopped

2 tbsp. tahini paste
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 garlic clove, peeled
2 tbsp. feta, crumbled
pinch sea salt (to taste)

1. Start with the bacon. Cook in a medium frying pan over a medium heat for 15-20 minutes – stirring occasionally, until crisp. Once cooked, transfer to a paper towel to absorb the excess fat.
2. In a small bowl toss the tomatoes with 1 tbsp. olive oil, parsley and a pinch of sea salt.
3. In another bowl, toss the lettuce with the preserved lemons and 1 tbsp. olive oil.
4. To make the dressing, in a small food processor blend the yoghurt, tahini, lemon juice, garlic and a 2 tbsp. water (or until smooth). Season to taste.
5. To serve, arrange ingredients on a plate’/ platter. Top with feta and drizzle over the dressing.
