Turkish Chickpea Salad (Nohut Salatasi)

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 0 mins

I learned this refreshing salad in a Turkish cooking class. Preparation time does not include optional marinating time, but marinating is recommended for full flavor.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse and drain chickpeas.
  2. Mix chickpeas, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and salt in a shallow baking dish (shallow so that the liquid can soak more of the chickpeas). Set in refrigerator to marinate for 4 hours or overnight. (If not marinating, mix in a bowl.).
  3. After marinating, stir chickpeas with all other ingredients (except for feta) in a bowl.
  4. Just before serving, sprinkle crumbled feta over the salad.

Easy and delicious. I allowed this to chill for about 5 hours and the flavors developed nicely. I made this exactly as written, just added a clove of minced garlic. I think cilantro would work well in place of parsley. I may try that next time. Thanx!

I made this for lunch today and really enjoyed it. The feta blends perfectly with the chickpeas. I've never used apple cidar vinegar in this way but I liked it. :)

Amazing! Used fresh flat leaf parsley from the garden. The marinating is very important. Thanks for posting!
