Mint Lemonade Chickpea Salad

Each bite of this mint lemonade chickpea salad is like a drop of sunshine for your taste buds. Mint and lemon are no flavor strangers, and although both can be quite bold, they work wonderfully together, especially in this dressing.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas, or 1 ¼ (15-ounce) cans, drained, rinsed, and cooled to room temperature
  • ¾ cup quartered cherry tomatoes
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice (from about 1 large lemon)
  • 2 tablespoons packed, finely chopped fresh mint
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • freshly cracked sea or Himalayan salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper

Instructions:

  1. Place the chickpeas and quartered tomatoes in a medium bowl.
  2. Whisk the lemon juice, mint, and garlic in a separate bowl; season with a few grinds of fresh Himalayan salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Add the dressing to the chickpeas and tomatoes and toss.
  4. Divide salad among plates and serve a top a bed of greens , garnished with additional mint and lemon slices.
