Prepare the falafels

  • Preheat the oven to 375ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Rinse and drain the chickpeas.
  • Rinse and finely chop the parsley and cilantro.
  • Finely dice the onion.

Bake the falafels

  • Add the chickpea flour and pulse again to incorporate.
  • Form the falafel mixture into 1-inch balls and press them lightly to form a puck-like shape.
  • Place them on a baking sheet and bake until firm and golden-brown, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let cool slightly.

Prepare the salad

  • Rinse and roughly tear the mint and leafy greens.
  • Rinse and halve the grapes. Rinse the blueberries.
  • Roughly chop the walnuts.
  • Using a fork, whisk the sweet citrus dressing and olive oil together in a small bowl.

Bring it all together

  • Drizzle with sweet citrus dressing and garnish with crumbled feta to serve.
