Chickpea Salad Ingredient Notes

  • Chickpeas– use home cooked or canned.
  • Tomatoes- the fresher, the more flavorful. Cherry and grape tomatoes tend to be sweeter.
  • Cucumber- English, Persian, Japanese, Burpless, any thin-skinned seedless cucumber. We go the easy route and don’t peel them, plus there is a lot of nutrition in the peel!
  • Fresh Mint- this makes the salad so fresh and bright!

    1. Dill would be good with parsley or basil. Cilantro and basil- the basil will turn dark but still taste good.

  1. I made it today. Because I didn’t have enough red onion, the punch came from marinated artichokes hearts. It was really good. It is necessary to use less oil the recipe calls for, because marinate has its own.

  2. This is sooo delicious. So simple and colorful and tasty! Thank you, Sylvia, another winner!!

  3. Your recipes are amazing, so delicious and healthy.
