Heidi’s Summertime Chickpea Salad
This is one beautiful summertime salad! During a July cookout at my friend Michelle’s house, I ate and fell in love with this salad. Michelle’s sister-in-law, Heidi, made a delicious chickpea salad that included so many delicious summertime veggies. What I did was try to replicate her recipe (minus the olives because I’m not a big fan). I used “My Favorite Salad Dressing” as the dressing. I think she used an Italian dressing. This salad tastes great the next day and will last for a several days in the refrigerator.
2 cans organic chickpea (garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained
1 medium organic red onion, minced
1 organic yellow pepper
1 pint organic grape tomatoes, diced
1 English cucumber, diced
1/2 bag radishes, chopped
2/3 cup of “My Favorite Salad Dressing”
Drain and rinse 2 cans of chickpeas. Add to a large bowl, the minced onion, chopped pepper,tomatoes, cucumber and radishes. Mix in the salad dressing. Refrigerate and let the flavors meld for about 1 hour.
