Chickpea Salad Recipe

This delicious tasting easy to make Chickpea Salad 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 the ability to have staying power 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.

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.

Organic fresh vegetables are my first choice in this salad; however, if you don’t have access to organic farm fresh veggies, no worries; just 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.

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.

    I made this and we loved it. I always have canned chickpeas in the cupboard so this was perfect. It is a great meat alternative. Protein-packed…and this salad is great as a main dish meal. I will make it again.

    I love colorful salads like these. This salad was gorgeous and so full of nutrients as well. The only change I made is to hold off on the parmesan. Thank you for sharing! I will be making this again.
