Quick and easy vegetarian meal

Good day dudes and dudettes!

Alright, I've been shoving BBQ and meaty goodness down your throat over the past few posts, so now it's time to switch gears and lighten the mealtime load. The following recipe was cobbled together for a certain lady friend who had no idea what to have for dinner (a fairly common occurrence, eh kitten?).

After she tried it, she said it was good, so I figure I might as well share.

Chickpea Salad

- 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed thoroughly (use a colander/strainer to rinse the chickpeas, give them a good rinse since they have a ton of salt on them)

- 1/2 small red or Vidalia onion, chopped

- 1 small tomato, chopped

- 1/2 cup chopped cilantro

Mix all ingredients in a bowl with Dressing


- juice from 1/8 lemon

- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

- 2 tbsp olive oil (best quality)

- 1 tsp dried basil

- salt and pepper to taste

Whisk ingredients together with a fork.

Serve in salad bowl with good quality pita bread or baguette.



  1. Sounds good, except for the cilantro! ewwwie ewwie ew!

  2. Replace cilantro with parsley.
