Hi all and welcome back!
I hope you are having a great week! I for sure am so happy that days are getting “longer” and we can finally enjoy daylight until late in the afternoon again. To me this time of the year kind of feels like breathing again and having more time to do things after work.
In fact, I’ve been pretty busy lately with errands, friends and all, but I’ve committed myself to find the time to share my weekly recipe 😉
And this fresh chickpea cubes salad is indeed a great idea for busy days and a last minute lunch/dinner, packed with proteins and flavour!
A few weeks ago I shared the recipe for fried chickpea sticks, which is a traditional Italian dish typical of Liguria, the region where I’m from.
Basically, the chickpea cubes I use for this salad are made of that same batter when it’s out of the fridge and solidified, but not fried.
So yup, it’s just as simple as that, you take the refrigerated chickpea batter, cut it into cubes and in a bowl you mix them with chopped spring onions, green leaf salad and the seasoning of your choice!
I love to season it with extra-virgin olive oil, apple vinegar, salt and pinch of pepper and paprika!
But if you’re not into onions you can obviously add any veggie of your choice, because these chickpea cubes really get along well with a lot of veggies you know. Chickpeas are really friendly legumes.
Please bear with my nonsense.
And let me know what is your inspiration for other versions of this salad! I am very very curious to know!
