I can’t stop eating this chickpea salad

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Recipes and Food

This was today’s Daily Lunches dish and I wanted to share it here because it was The Perfect Lunch.

May 22 #dailylunches - Crunchy chickpea salad

The original recipe came from here, but I made a few small changes.

  • I cut the whole recipe in half. It still made plenty!
  • I added some finely diced red onion in place of the green onion (I just used a bit on the top.)
  • I mixed in a bit of chopped parsley and a squirt of fresh lemon to the mixture.
  • At the end I tossed a very small handful of pecan pieces on top instead of mixing in a measure of walnuts.
  • I served it over kale, because that’s what I had on hand. Regular green leaf lettuce would be even better.

It was utterly delicious, and quick to make. It’s a keeper for sure.

Nice! You can do similar things with tofu to make “egg salad.”

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
