Chickpea and Roasted Red Pepper Salad

Hubby love chickpeas. They are yet another food that I had never tried before meeting him. We always have a couple cans in the pantry. One of our favorite ways to eat chickpeas is to throw them on top of a salad. Hubby always ends up putting a very large scoop on his salad to which I always comment “want some salad with your chickpeas”.

In this case, the chickpeas make up the salad. They’re mixed with another of our favorites, roasted red peppers. I’ve never roasted my own peppers even though I hear it’s very simple. Our grocery store sells cans of roasted red peppers that are great and opening a jar is definitely easier than roasting my own peppers. We both enjoyed this salad in our lunches this week. It’s quite tasty.

Chickpea and Roasted Red Pepper Salad

Ingredients:

2 large red peppers, roasted and skinned
2 cans chickpeas, rinsed
1/4 cup of parsley, chopped
3 tablespoons of capers, rinsed
2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice or red wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon of salt
2 cloves of garlic, minced
4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

Directions:

Cut the peppers into half-inch wide strips and put them in a large bowl together with the chickpeas, herbs and the capers. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, salt, garlic and oil. Pour over the chickpea mixture and combine.Serve immediately, or refrigerate it for a day to get the flavors to mingle fantastically.

    This sounds awesome! The pictures are wonderful as well. I can’t for the life of me figure out how to get good burger pictures. I love the pizza sauce on this! Thanks!

    That’s a good point, there isn’t actually Parmesan in it… You could use parm instead of provolone cheese.
