Chickpea Salad

My New Years resolution is to eat more veggies and this salad is the perfect way to get in some extra vegetables and protein in a way that is delicious and nutritious. This is a great addition to a chicken or fish main dish or it is good to eat alone for lunch or dinner.


1 small can Chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed

1/2 of a large red bell pepper, diced

1/4 of an English cucumber, diced

1 small tomato, diced

1/2 of a small red onion, diced

2T cilantro, fine chopped

The juice of 1 lemon (don’t forget to remove the seeds)

1/4t cumin

As much or as little salt as you want

Combine all of the ingredients and refrigerate overnight. Enjoy!

Alternative – this can also be used as a type of salsa for your tortilla chips.
