CHICKPEA SALAD | easy, vegan chickpea salad recipe

This chickpea salad is a light, healthy, vegan recipe that is packed with veggies, and absolutely delicious. It makes a lovely light lunch or a side dish and is perfect for a bbq or picnic. It’s the perfect way to brighten up your pantry staples with fresh ingredients.

My favorite thing about this chickpea salad is that it comes together in minutes and is super flexible. You can swap out the vegetables and herbs with whatever you have on hand. So think of this recipe as a blueprint and then tweak to make it work for you.

Can I eat chickpeas raw? Lots of people ask me this! If you buy your chickpeas in a can, they will have been cooked already and are not raw, therefore they are safe to eat straight from the can. Raw chickpeas, however, need to be soaked and cooked before eaten.
