READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Annacia

This is a recipe from a Spanish website for immigrents to Spain. As usual they are not forth coming with any times for anything so I'm guessing, sorry. I'm using assumed time for making this with canned beans. Posted For Zaar World Tour.

Delicious fresh-tasting salad! My rating is based on directions. Several ingredients are missing quantities, and I would mince the garlic rather than tossing it whole. I used a 7-oz jar of roasted red peppers (yielded 6 oz. fruit), which I estimated was equivalent to 2.5 large red bell peppers in U.S. sizing, but per Barrinaga's website, their 1/4 K (8 oz) jar has 9-12 fruits, so perhaps I had enough. I used 3 hard-boiled eggs, and that seemed like the right amount. Lucky me, I had a ripe home-grown tomato! Made for Please Review My Recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain and rinse the chickpeas (if using dried chickpeas soak overnight and then boil the next day in a pressure cooker for 10 mins or boil for 1 hour 10 mins in a pan).
  2. Prepare the tomato by blanching it and removing the skin and pips following this cut it into small cubes and place in a bowl.
  3. Add the red peppers to the bowl (if you can´t find the spanish pimientos del piquillo you will need to roast the red peppers for about 20 mins and then remove the kin and cut into strips).
  4. Add the eggs, onions and garlic.
  5. Cut the cured ham into small squares and add to the bowl.
  6. Dress with extra virgin olive oil and white wine vinegar over and season with salt and pepper
  7. Add the chickpeas to the salad mixture
  8. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve.
