I love buckwheat and for that reason this salad is my favourite one. Buckwheat is healthy and has a light nutty and aromatic taste. In addition I combine lots of colourful vegetables and tasty chickpeas. Chickpeas are high in fibre and rich in proteins. A healthy salad which is perfect for preparing and taking away.
