Chickpea Salad Recipe

August 1, 2017 (Last Updated: May 31, 2021)

This delicious tasting, easy-to-make Chickpea Salad recipe combines all of my favorite organic garden fresh vegetables in one fabulous easy recipe. The chickpeas are combined with zucchini, vine-ripened tomatoes, sliced green onions, sweet yellow bell peppers, drizzled with virgin olive oil, and lemon dressing.

One of the things I love most about this Chickpea Salad is staying powerful in the refrigerator. The other thing it’s a cinch to throw together in about 20 minutes or less, and you have the perfect salad for almost any meal this summer.

 

 Chickpea Salad I don’t know about, Y’all, but come the August heat here in the South, I am almost totally against anything that requires me to turn on a burner or oven. It’s just too darn hot and muggy to mess around with additional heat sources if I don’t have an excellent reason. Crisp cold salads like this Chickpea Salad become second nature this time of the year. A little chopping and tossing and I have a healthy side my family loves.

 

 

 

Chickpea SaladYou can see that the ingredients are as simple. Organic fresh vegetables are my first choice in this salad; however, if you don’t have access to organic farm fresh veggies, no worries; try to stick to locally grown fresh produce. Why stick to locally grown foods, you ask? The crops are picked at their peak of ripeness/freshness instead of being harvested early to be shipped and distributed to the market.

 

 

 

Chickpea SaladNo cooking is needed to make this delicious tasting Chickpea Salad; all you do is chop the fresh veggies and toss them with the homemade lemony dressing. Place the salad in the fridge for an hour or two, if desired. This salad is so versatile for lunches over mixed baby greens, but it’s also perfect as is. You can also add a cup of cooked Orzo or Ditalini to the Chickpea Salad to make it more hearty if you want.
