You will need
12 shallots, peeled and cut in half
2 cloves garlic, whole and unpeeled
25g butter, cut into small dice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 x can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
200g feta cheese, crumbled
100g soft round lettuce
1. Place the shallots in a roasting tin, cut side up and dot with the butter and a grind of salt and pepper. Add the unpeeled whole garlic cloves to the tin and roast in the oven at 200°C/gas mark 6 for 15 minutes until the onions are soft and golden.
2. When the onions are cooked remove them to a plate while you make the dressing in the roasting tin. Squeeze the garlic out of its skin and mash it up with a fork.
3. Add the oil, vinegar and honey and using a small whisk combine with the mashed roast garlic, scraping the bottom of the tin to get off all the caramelized shallot juices. Add the chopped parsley and taste, adding more seasoning if necessary.
