Chickpea salad is one of my favorite go to recipes...
Especially since it's super quick to prepare which makes it perfect when you're short on time.
A great make ahead salad that's high in protein, satisfying and delicious...
And you can usually find this salad or another version of chickpea salad without the peas in my fridge on a regular basis.
The green peas are great for added extra protein, texture and a nice pop of color that they give to the salad...
Plus when it comes to peas, I prefer them mostly cold in salads.
So if you prefer peas in salads as well another recipe we really love is this easy pea salad.
CHICKPEA SALAD RECIPE INGREDIENTS
- Garbanzo Beans- chickpeas
- Green Peas- frozen
- Red Onion
- Mayo- for vegan option use vegan mayo
- Apple Cider Vinegar
HOW TO MAKE THIS SALAD
It's super easy to make and really the hardest part is dicing up the veggies.
But you'll wanna start by rinsing a can of garbanzo beans and then you can either pulse them up in the food processor to desired consistency or if you don't have one use a potato masher.
Put them in a bowl with the rinsed frozen green peas, celery, onion, diced garlic and combine.
In small separate bowl mix mayo, apple cider vinegar, seasonings and salt & pepper to taste.
Pour over pea mixture and stir till everything is thoroughly incorporated.
WAYS TO SERVE CHICKPEA SALAD
You can serve it as an appetizer with crackers, chips or even cut up veggies.
Topped on a bed of salad greens for a healthy dinner or lunch.
On a wrap or sandwich bread. These almond flour tortillas make a delicious holder for it.

Great recipe! I'm new to cooking and this no-cook recipe was perfect for a last minute lunch. I also love the use of garbanzo beans and tasting it differently than all the other recipes
Thank-you! Glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the lovely feedback!🥰
Delicious! I am so glad for a different flavor profile for chick peas. All recipes seem to be with a Mediterranean slant. Bread suggestion-- pita or some pocket bread as many of my ingredients fell out of my bun. Also I forgot to mash the chick peas (wasnt getting out the food processor for such a small batch) -- No big deal-- didn't affect taste. Just delicious and easy recipe!
I can’t have apple cider vinegar needing a substitute.
Hi Pam, you can use red or white wine vinegar as a substitute! Let me know if you give it a try.
