Silk Road chickpea salad from mymommymakesit
I do love fresh dill on it!
This is a spicy and different salad using chickpeas from http://mymommymakesit.blogspot.com/
I like it. I love her recipes because they have cool flavors!
Here is what she says here or down below. And I quote:
"Simple Summer Salad for Parties, Potlucks and Picnics
Add to a large bowl
2 cups of cooked or canned chickpeas, drained
1 coarsely chopped tomato
Finely chop and add to a small bowl
1 jalepeno pepper
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 of a red onion ( I used less because mine was very big)
1 inch of fresh, peeled ginger root
Add to the small bowl
1TBSP of whole cumin seeds
The juice of 1 lime
1 TBSP of olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix the "dressing" well and dump into the large bowl
Stir all the ingredients with a large spoon
Garnish with finely chopped mint, parsley, arugula, cilantro, basil, or dill
Serve and enjoy
Happy Forth of July! "
So visit her blog!
This is good served with bread and here is a nice oil free bread (this is with gluten)
