  1. We soak the chickpeas the day before.
  2. We rinse the chickpeas under the tap, fill our Selecta pressure cooker with water up to the mark indicated, add the chickpeas and close. Once steam begins to emerge, we will have between 20-25 minutes depending on the type of chickpeas. Once ready we reserve.
  3. The first thing we will do is prepare the vinaigrette, to do this we will mix all the ingredients well and set aside.
  4. We cut the cucumber into very thin slices, or if you prefer, into cubes.
  5. We cut the red onion into julienne strips, as well as the garlic.
  6. We wash the spinach leaves well and dry.
  7. For this salad you can use warm or cold chickpeas, whichever you like best.
  8. To assemble the dish, we will put a base with the spinach leaves, and we will continue with the rest of the ingredients. We will finish the dish with the crumbled feta cheese and the sprouts, I have used alfalfa, but you can add the one you like the most or a mixture of them.
  9. Once everyone has served on their plate, accompany it with the vinaigrette to taste.
