This is a very cheerful dinner. Radishes and potatoes are roasted in a little honey and lemon to exaggerate their sweetness, offset by the crispy roast chickpeas.

Preheat the oven to 220°C/gas mark 7
Tumble the radishes, potatoes and feta onto a roasting tray with a tablespoon of the olive oil, half the lemon juice, the honey and some salt
In a separate roasting tray, mix the chickpeas with a generous pinch of salt, another tablespoon of olive oil and the zest of the lemon
Place the tray with the radishes and potatoes in the oven for 30 minutes, giving it a shake once or twice during the roasting time. With 15 minutes to go, add the tray with the chickpeas to the oven. These will be ready when the chickpeas are crispy and beginning to blister in places, and the radishes and potatoes are soft and brown at the edges
Meanwhile, make the dressing by whisking the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil with the remaining lemon juice and the mustard. Season well with salt and pepper, taste and add more lemon if you like and set aside
Once the chickpeas and radishes have finished cooking, remove from the oven and mix everything in rough layers on a large platter with the herbs, then drizzle the dressing over the top
