Creamy chickpea salad with avocado, feta & dill

This creamy chickpea salad reminds me of late summer days at our grandparents' country house in Sweden. I suppose it's the abundance of dill and it's vibrant and vigorous scent. It's just such a Swedish herb. This salad would go perfectly with the traditional Swedish 'kräftskiva' I guess. But it's just as good on its own with a nice slice of bread on the side.

Moving out to the terrace

This weekend we finally moved outside and let the outdoor season begin. The terrace becomes the new livingroom and diningroom. Just like most people I love eating and drinking outside and I think it's a deep, almost primal desire we all share.
