Spanish-Inspired Chickpea Salad
Bean salads are popular summer cookout fare, and this Spanish-inspired Chickpea Salad is an alternative to the usual tangy, sweet bean salad. The salad is usually served in Spain as one of an assortment of tapas – small small portions of appetizers served with wine. It also makes a delicious, hearty summer entrée salad, and there’s absolutely no cooking involved.
Combine chickpeas, ham, eggs, green onions, tomato and parsley. Whisk olive oil, vinegar and garlic together in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Toss dressing with the salad. Taste and add more salt and pepper, if needed.
Makes 8 servings.
