Quick and easy chickpea salad

This salad is crazy easy and, oh, crazy delicious. Serve it in a pita pocket, atop a bed of lettuce, as a garnish on a burger, or eat it straight out of the bowl like I do.

Chickpea Salad

Chickpeas, 1 can
Green pepper, diced
Red onion, 1/4 minced
Kalamata olives, chopped
Feta cheese
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

1. Rinse chickpeas and place in a mixing bowl. Chop up everything else and throw it in. Drizzle with olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Note: Soak your red onion in an ice bath for about 10 minutes to combat the stanky bite it leaves behind. Or simply assume no one wants to be near you after you eat this.

  1. Boy does this sound great! (Except for the olives; can’t stand ‘em.) I am always looking for creative things to do with chick peas. My mom makes great “bean balls,” ever try something like that? I have no idea how she makes them, but they are I guess vaguely similar in concept to felafel (sp)…fried and burger-shaped.
