Chickpea Pasta Salad

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This is a different and very tasty salad. I have even added cooked chicken or beef to the mixture. Prep time does not include boiling the pasta and cooking time is chilling time. Adjust all amounts to taste.

You have to love balsamic to enjoy this recipe (which I do!). I found this very addicting. Since it was just me eating it, I had leftovers for a few days and it kept well. The mayo was barely noticeable but was critical for getting the dressing to stick to the pasta. What a great way for a vegetarian to get some protien.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pasta in boiling water until firm-tender drain, and rinse under cold water until cool; drain again well.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the cooked pasta, chick-peas, carrot, bell pepper and green onions.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mayo, mustard, black pepper, salt and Italian seasoning until well blended (adding more spices to taste); pour over the salad; toss to coat evenly.
  4. Cover, and refrigerate for 2 hours to blend flavors.
