Thanks to my vegetarian hubby, you will always find chickpeas (garbanzo beans) in our pantry. They are a super source of protein and go well with so many things.

 

This Easy Chickpea Salad Recipe is a lunchtime favorite, so I thought I would share it with all you lovelies :)

 

My entire family LOVES olives, but I know that some folks out there do not share this love :)  

 

Not a fan of olives? Substitute in diced tomatoes and cucumbers.  Both versions are equally Delicious!

Directions

1. Place all ingredients into a bowl, and mix until well combined. I think it is easiest to place all ingredients in to a Tupperware and shake. (as shown in the picture). Refrigerate until you are ready to serve.

  1. I am so thankful that I found your blog! Your recipes are out of this world!

  2. three of my favorite things…..looks so good

  3. Is there something I could use in place of the Italian dressing/vinaigrette? I dislike both immensely!

  4. Oh YUM … this looks wonderful! I love chickpeas … they are so versatile, loaded with flavor and nutritional. I’m vegan so we’ve also got them on hand! Thanks for this recipe … I’ll definitely give it a try!
