A couple of months ago, I went to visit my mom and ran into one of my aunts from New York who’s been a vegetarian for more than 20 years. I immediately started telling her about our family’s new resolution to try to eat less meat during the week (for health reasons and also to save money) and asked her all about the dishes she cooks daily. She got up right away and started making this easy recipe that’s already become one my family’s favorites. It’s very simple and uses basic ingredients I usually have at home. Plus, my children love to see that everything is already chopped up into pieces and easy to chew! MORE + LESS -

Expert Tips

  • This chickpea salad is eaten cold and tastes delicious if you put it in the refrigerator for an hour or two to let the flavors blend well.
  • Children love it because everything is already chopped up into pieces for their small mouths. But make sure you mash the chickpeas for children under two, as it may be dangerous.
