Chickpea salad with lemon and herbs

Chickpea salad with lemon and herbs

I found this little easy, fabulous, praise worthy recipe while flipping through my neighbor’s bon apetit!

I thought it looked interesting and really who doesn’t like a little garlic with their parm and evoo?

This thing is fantastic! The garlic gives you a bite, the soft texture of the chick peas, the fresh basil!

I have been known to just whip up the “dressing” for anything else – like tonight i had left over roasted red peppers, artichokes and cherry tomatoes – and oh yes!




Pre-prepping tips:

  • Rinse and drain the chickpeas
  • Make the liquid part of the marinade , and store in a medium side bowl.
    • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil (cajun)
    • 2 small garlic clove, pressed
  • If you are more than a day or 2, make the marinade closer to the day of use. Or use less garlic, it can get potent!

Day of:

  • Combine the dressing and the chickpeas. Add the fresh herbs and parmesan cheese!
