Chickpea Salad



I thought I had posted this before. But I was asked for the recipe and couldn't find it. It's so good, I make it quite often. It goes well with everything.

Chickpea Salad

Cloves of garlic – pop in the microwave for 60 seconds, and then crush.
Salt and pepper freshly cracked
Juice of one lemon
A handful of fresh chopped – Mint, coriander and parsley
150grms of feta crumbled
½ a Spanish onion diced
A dash of olive oil
2 cups of chickpeas

Mix all ingredients together and serve.

I used canned chickpeas this time, something I’ve avoided in the past. They were actually really nice. Just rinse well and allow to sit in the lemon juice and salt for awhile to ensure there’s no ‘canned’ taste

  1. sounds lovely. Wish I could getm dried here for cheaper instead of just canned. I'm dreaming of hummus & falafels as well now!!

  2. One of my favourites too. I add chillies and tomatoes to it (no chilliles for the girls though). I let the chick peas marinate in the juices of all the igredients exept feta cheese for a while, and I also cryuh a few with the fork, and then add feta cheese when it's ready to go to the table. Seriously the best salad ever. I used to put corriander in it, but then I must have read it from you that you put mint, so it's mint and basil all the way now :) Never put garlic in it before, must try it.
