Good Eats : : chickpea salad

Maxine Bertrand

Summer is here and let's face it, we all have some tweaking to do to get our beach-ready body back. At least I know I do! Salads are without a doubt the ultimate diet food in order to lose weight and/or maintain it. But seriously, does it have to be the same old boring rabbit food? I think not! This chickpea salad is so fresh, bursting with summer flavours and will not leave you feeling hungry, I guarantee it. If you are trying shed some pounds, get fit for your big day or just love to eat well, this is for you.

Salad Ingredients

1 19oz can chickpeas - rinsed and drained

1 cucumber , diced

1 yellow or red pepper, diced

1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved

1/4 cup red onion, diced {I like them diced small}

2 tbsp {or as desired} fresh cilantro, chopped {picked from my own plant that I grew this spring, thank you very much!}

1 3/4 tsp cumin

Dressing Ingredients

1/4 cup shallots, thinly diced

1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1/3 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed

Salt and pepper to taste


Combine all salad ingredients in a large bowl and mix all dressing ingredients in a separate bowl. Pour dressing over salad and mix together by gently flipping the ingredients. Salt and pepper to taste... and here you have it!

I hope you love it as much as I do!
