The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work,
who felt their own creative power restive and uprising, and gave to it neither power nor time.
This recipe for Chickpea Salad Sliders, has become a god-send when having to whip something up quickly and inexpensively for a gathering- and when it needs it to be vegan or vegetarian -and still hearty. A friend introduced them to me a few years ago, and I fell in love with them, putting a variation of them on our catering menu. They are always a big hit, and surprisingly, non-vegans end up devouring them too. It's such a simple recipe that can me made in minutes. It's also perfect for easy weeknight meals, or lunches, and instead of using slider buns, the salad can be stuffed into pita bread, or into wraps. If gluten free, skip the bread all together and place a scoop of the flavor chickpea salad over a bed of dressed arugula. For those, who are not cilantro fans, substitute Italian parsley and a bit of fresh tarragon.
