directions

  • Rinse and drain chickpeas.
  • 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.).
  • After marinating, stir chickpeas with all other ingredients (except for feta) in a bowl.
  • Just before serving, sprinkle crumbled feta over the salad.

    This is wonderful! I didn't have green onions on hand, so I substituted the onions with large chives. Also, I added halved yellow cherry tomatoes. Delicious, bright, and simple!

    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!
     

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I'd describe myself as enthusiastic and sometimes eccentric. I teach English in China, and it's an awesome job. As for my cooking philosophy, I like easy things that might take a long time to cook, but only need occasional tending (like bread or dals). Lately, I've been very interested in healthy substitutions to make dishes with less fat and/or more fiber. I've been experimenting with making tasty recipes that are free of processed sugars and flour. Since moving to China, I've found myself without an oven and without access to common ingredients, like Bisquick and vanilla ext., so I'm currently looking for breads or cakes that I can cook in a crockpot. I only post recipes that I have tried, and many are recipes that I have created myself.
