This Chickpea Garden Salad Recipe is hearty enough as a lunch all by itself. The chickpeas provide the protein and the other vegetables provide fiber, nutrients and minerals. A great all around simple summer salad recipe.
Chickpeas are well known for their slightly nutty flavour and this combines very well with the garden vegetables in this simple summer salad. There are a variety of vegetables, finely cut so as not to overpower the bland chickpea.The slightly sweet and zesty dressing combines very well with the assortment of ingredients.
Yield: Makes 8 (3/4-cup) servings.
1. You can substitute other beans for the chickpea, such as: navy beans, black beans, red beans.
2. You can use any colour of sweet pepper. I just used red for a colour balance.
3. You can purchase small bags of pre-shredded carrots to save yourself some time.
