Simple and easy chickpea Salad
This salad is super easy with rather few ingredients, and still very tasty and a good side dish for a dinner party or a tapas get together, which is what I used it for this past weekend.
2 tins of chickpeas, approx. 450 g, drained and rinsed
Juice of 1 lemon
3 tbsp. of olive oil
1 scallion, finely chopped
1 handful of cherry tomatoes, cut into halves
1 bunch of parsley
A pinch of sea salt
Here’s what you do;
Start by draining and rinsing the chickpeas before adding them to a large bowl.
Marinate the chickpeas with lemon juice, olive oil and a little salt. Let it soak for a bit to really soak up the flavors.
Finally add the chopped scallion, parsley and chopped cherry tomatoes. And that’s it, very simple and yet so so tasty.
You can add a bunch of other ingredients if you want. Perhaps some green olives, corn, cucumber, fresh basil, feta or mozzarella cheese, bell pepper….
You can serve it right away or make it ahead, cover it with film and keep it in the fridge.
