Best Chickpea Salad is one that is insanely good to eat.  It’s simply made with chopped cucumbers, red bell peppers, baby spinach, fresh basil, and seasonings.  This chickpea salad is not only vegan, gluten-free, and nut-free, it makes a wonderful salad to serve as a side dish all season long. 

 

My daughter Lizzy loves Chickpea Salad and always orders one at her favorite health food store every time she’s in New York.  She always begs me to make it for her all the time!

So when I decided to finally recreate this salad for her, the outcome was amazing!

Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, are wonderful to keep in your kitchen as a staple.  

Other than making hummus, chickpeas which are high in protein, are wonderful to add some texture and flavor to a variety of salads.

And this salad is loaded with them, plus fresh vegetables!  What could be better?

Fresh bell peppers along with fresh cucumbers not only add flavors but they add a nice crunch to this chickpea salad. 

I love adding fresh basil to salads and especially in this one.  It adds a refreshing flavor that is appealing to the palate and it’s perfect in my chickpea salad, so don’t leave it out.
