|Chickpea Fresh Herb Salad|
- 2 cans of chickpeas
- 3 ribs celery, diced
- 1/2 cup fresh chopped parsley I used Italian flat leaf since that's what I have growing on my deck)
- 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
- 1 pint organic cherry tomatoes, some halved
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 small can sliced black olives
- juice of 1 lemon
- salt and pepper to taste
In a skillet, combine beans, celery, herbs, and olive oil, stirring frequently over low heat for 3 to 5 minutes, until the herbs are softened but not cooked. Remove from heat and stir in the remaining ingredients, tossing to combine.
It's that easy, and the perfect summer salad when you are wanting something light and fresh that won't leave you hungry.
