This is a super easy recipe for chickpea salad that’s perfect for picnics or to take along to a BBQ. With lemon and parsley, it makes the perfect zesty side dish that goes well with anything from the grill!
5 Minute Chickpea Salad
2 cans of chicken peas, drained and raised well
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 cups grated Parmesean cheese (the real stuff that that crumbly business)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Drain chickpeas and rinse very well under cold water (I like to dump them in a colander to do this). Once the chickpeas are throughly rinsed, add all ingredients to a medium sized bowl and mix well. The salad can be served immediately but if tou have time to refrigerate it, I highly recommend it! Refrigerating it for an 1 hour (the longer the better!) really gives it time to allow the flavors to meld.
