Chickpea salad


Have some left over chickpeas and you don’t know what to do with them? have a lonely can of chickpeas in your pantry begging to be used? want a healthy, filling snack?

This salad could be your answer, it was mine when I had some chickpeas left over from making Turkish Pilaf. It is super quick and comes together in no time at all.

P.S. For all of you olive haters out there, I promise this will be the last olive recipe for a while ๐Ÿ™‚
