Chickpea Salad
This Recipe:
Skill Level: Beginner
Serves: 3-4
Start to Finish: 10 min
Prep: 10 min
Cook: 0 min
Ingredients:

¼ cup diced red onion
Freshly squeezed juice of ½ lemon
Pinch salt
2 cups cooked, drained chickpeas (or whatever you have—I used a 20-ounce can to yield this amount, but a 15 ounce can is fine)
¼ cup diced red bell pepper
Finely chopped fresh herbs (such as a handful fresh basil, parsley or cilantro leaves and/or ½ teaspoon fresh thyme or rosemary)
2 to 4 tablespoons good olive oil (see Note)

Directions:

In a bowl, toss the onion with the lemon and salt. Add the remaining ingredients, and toss well. Marinate at room temperature for an hour or refrigerate overnight before serving.

Note: Use the lesser amount of oil to make a salad. Increase the oil for marinated chickpeas you can use to dress a bed of baby spinach or other salad greens.
