Easiest Chickpea Salad

easiest chickpea salad

In my house, we braai with family every Sunday, without fail. So we’re always looking for new ideas when it comes to side dishes. Sure – the meat is the easy part, but you can’t always  have the same old boring salad every week! And besides that – you also don’t want to be in the kitchen slaving away while you’re having people over. I suggest you give my Easiest Chickpea Salad a bash! Not everyone is crazy about chickpeas – but sometimes, all it takes are a few tasty combinations to change someone’s mind.

This chickpea salad requires all but 5 super healthy ingredients: chickpeas, avocado, cherry tomatoes, red onion and fresh coriander. This will form the base of the salad, so you can add whatever other ingredients you desire. Personally, I like adding feta (because everything is better with cheese). However, let me tell you it isn’t necessary.

And now I’m sure you’re wondering about a salad dressing…

I added 2 tablespoons of Woolworths Slimmers Choice dressing…because its only 4 calories per tablespoon – and ties it all together.
