1 (16 ounce) can
garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and rinsed
salt, or to taste
ground black pepper
Really good, quick recipe! I didn't have onions in the house but substituted some chopped green onions and that worked well. Also, I used cherry tomatoes cut in half rather than a regular tomato. Lastly, I squeezed lemon juice over the entire salad at the end rather than just place lemon slices on it. Amazing and I will make again. As a note, I loved the cider vinegar as an ingredient in this recipe!
Little too much onion for me, even though I am an avid onion lover. I didn't have vinegar or oil on me, which might have overall altered the potential flavor of the salad. With my alterations, this salad was just okay.
This was a wonderful dish that I've already made a couple times last week. The only change I made was the second time I made it. I found yellow onions too overpowering so the second time I used green onions. It had a much nicer flavor and added a nice bit of color. I also added diced red bell pepper and it was delicious!
I really liked this recipe, though I agree with some of the other reviews that the onion was a little overpowering, so next time I will use green onion instead. I also added celery, which was nice.
this is my first time making a chickpea salad and now i'll definitely be making more. it was so simple and it came out delicious. I made some adjustments to mine: i used cilantro instead of onions (didn't have any) and added a pinch more cider vinegar (i like it a little more sour)~i can't wait to share this with my bf!
Fast, easy, cheap and delicious! I admit I had my doubts. With so few ingredients, but it was GREAT!! I couldn't find my cider vinegar so I used tarragon vinegar. I'm sure even white would work. I also didn't have any lemon to garnish it so i used parsley which also gave it another degree of color. This is going to be a staple recipe for me!!
Quick, easy, yummy recipe. I needed a one-bowl dinner for myself one humid summer evening and this fit the bill perfectly.
I added chopped red pepper and snowpeas for extra crunch, plus crumbled in a bit of goat cheese. I think I'll try shallots instead of onion next time for a more subtle oniony flavour.
Thanks for this!
Tasty, healthy and refreshing. Left out the onion and used lemon juice in place of the sliced lemons.
