Soak the chickpeas overnight, then boil them. Alternatively, use tinned chickpeas, rinsing them well first. Clean and boil the potatoes. Meanwhile clean the tomatoes and cut into wedges. Rinse the rocket and shred. When the potatoes are cooked, peel and cut them into pieces. Make your salad by combining the chickpeas, tomatoes, rocket and potatoes.

The quantities of the four ingredients are up to you - make the salad as you like it best!
