Chana salad or say chickpea salad, a simple yet very delicious salad. Rich in protein & fibre, it is gluten-free, vegan and good for weight watchers too.

ChickPea Salad

Chickpeas Salad, though a very simple salad but is loved by all. I have made it several times and every time it has been a show stopper. Even my hubby, who is not a very salad loving person, likes this salad a lot and often asks me to make it. In fact, this chickpea salad and raw mango salad are the only two salads that he himself demands.

Whenever I boil Chickpeas, either for making Chana Masala or Hummus or Falafel, I take out a bowl of these and reserve it in the refrigerator for making a salad the next day.

Chickpeas also known as Garbanzo beans are a very healthy legume that comes with a full package of protein, vitamins, minerals, and fibre.
