Herbed Chickpea Salad with a Dijon Vinaigrette

Our local Market District has a great, simple Chickpea Salad that I l-o-v-e.  Since R is a big chickpea fan too, I decided to work on a homemade version for us to enjoy anytime.

A balance of the fresh, crisp herbs and a light dijon vinaigrette marry well with the earthy chickpeas.  Try this recipe, it is a quick, unique side dish!

Herbed Chickpea Salad with a Dijon Vinaigrette

2 - 15oz cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed (or 3 cups cooked chickpeas)
2 tablespoons fresh chives (or green onions)
2 tablespoons fresh parsley
2 tablespoons fresh mint (or use 4 tablespoons total parlsey instead)
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, removed from stems
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

Place the chickpeas in a bowl (this recipe is so easy, you can use the serving bowl to mix):

Gather your fresh herbs, rinse and pat dry.  Chop the chives, parsley, mint and thyme.  Add to the chickpeas:

In a bowl or jar, combine the lemon juice, olive oil, mustard, salt and pepper.  Stir or shake well.  Pour over the chickpea mixture and stir well to combine:


Serves 6 as a side.

Life is sweet,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
