It’s a rainy Wednesday afternoon, perfect for a cozy dinner, unfortunately, my kids are away and I was too comfortable to cook anything for myself. I decided to make a simple chickpea salad which I paired with some leftover baked chicken. Although simple, this salad was delicious and filling.
1 15 1/2-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed, drained
½ bell red pepper
2 tsp dried basil
1 tbsp chopped fresh Italian parsley
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 small garlic clove, pressed
1/3 cup Feta cheese
1tsp honey sriracha seasoning
Salt and Pepper
Combine the chickpeas, the red pepper, the basil, the chopped parsley, fresh lemon juice, extra-virgin olive oil, the pressed garlic clove, and the honey sriracha in a medium bowl. Add the Feta cheese and toss gently to blend all ingredients thoroughly. Season the chickpea salad to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
It can be served chilled or room temperature.
