Chick Pea Salad

Published : June 09, 2017

Quick, substantial and a wonderful accompaniment to any barbeque.

This chick pea salad is a combination and simplification of a few different recipes that I've cooked over the years.


2 cans of chick peas
1 red chilli, seeded if you wish
1/2 red or spanish onion moderately chopped
2 cloves of garlic
3 tbls olive oil
60g baby rocket
1 lemon
salt and pepper


Finely chop garlic and chilli.
Drain and rinse thoroughly chick peas.
Heat oil in a pan on moderate temperature. When up to temperature add garlic and chilli and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
Add chick peas.
Season with salt and pepper.
Sauté for a further 3-4 minutes allowing chick peas, garlic, chilli and oil to combine.
Zest over the pan half or 3/4 of the lemon whilst sautéing.
Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
Add onion and transfer to a serving bowl.
Stir through rocket and juice of half a lemon.
Check seasoning and serve.
