  1. Start by making the quick pickled onion. Mix all the ingredients and set aside for at least 10 mins.
  2. Put the chickpeas, cabbage and sultanas in a large bowl. Arrange the Little Gem leaves on a platter. Finely shred any very small leaves and add to the chickpea bowl.
  3. For the dressing, stir together all the ingredients until smooth. Pour over the chickpea mixture and stir to coat, then pile into the prepared lettuce cups. Scatter with the toasted almonds, and the red chilli and coriander, if using. Top with the drained pickled onion to serve.

Make ahead: Make the pickled onion and the chickpea mixture up to 24 hrs ahead and keep in the fridge. Add ½ tsp nigella seeds to the pickled onions for extra flavour, if you like.
