CHICKPEA BRUSCHETTA SALAD

January 19, 2013

Over the past year, I discovered I love chickpeas. And I have been writing my love poem to them ever since. Here, the love bug strikes again with this fresh appetizer.

Or, add chicken, and you have got a yummy lunch/dinner entree.

    Very good!I separated salad from dressing until I want to use it since I live alone and can’t eat it all inone sitting. I had to use goat cheese instead of the mozzarella because of allergies.
    Thanks!

    how long will this keep in the fridge? I want to eat it at least 2-3 times this week for lunch. It’s delicious!

    Just made this salad. Very tasty and satisfying. I’m an onion freak, so added a little sweet onion to it, but it is good just as written.

  • Carol

    Just FYI the recipe calls for honey but it’s omitted in the directions. Is adding the honey a mistake or is it mixed in with the other wet ingredients?

  • I have read so many articles or reviews concerning the blogger lovers but this post is actually a nice paragraph, keep it up.
