This chickpea salad has a refreshing citrus vinaigrette and is perfect as a side or meal for any summer party or hot night that you want to keep the oven off!
When making this salad, you want all the chopped veggies to be about the same size. Use the chickpeas as a reference and try to chop everything about that size or smaller.
To make the salad, drain and rinse chickpeas. Chop red pepper, yellow pepper, green onion, red onion and cilantro and combine with the chickpeas.
To make the vinaigrette, combine all dressing ingredients, stir together well and toss to cover chickpeas and vegetables.
Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for 2-3 days.
I promise you that this salad is as delicious as it is strange—and that’s saying a lot because it sounds pretty strange. The berries provide a bit of sweet/tart flavor, the beans make it hearty, walnut adds a bit of umami, and the onion adds a savory touch. Somehow it just works. Like magic.
The verdant green beans act as a base for sweet tangerine bits, chewy dates, crunchy pistachios and delicate slices of shallot. More than just a side of green beans this dish ends up being the star of the plate so serve it alongside a simple roast chicken or grilled fish. Tossing the green beans in the warm dressing adds a level of complexity. But keep this recipe in mind for all those upcoming warm summer nights.
