Recipe Ingredients for Chickpea Salad

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups Chickpeas Cooked Without Salt
1 cup leeks, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1/3 cup yogurt, Greek Yogurt
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoons warm water
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup red onion, chopped

Recipe Directions for Chickpea Salad

  1. Heat the cooking oil in a large skillet and add the chickpeas. Saute over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until they start getting a bit golden in color. Stir in the leeks and cook until the chickpeas are more golden and the leeks have browned a bit as well, roughly 7 - 10 minutes total. At the last minute stir in the garlic and the lemon zest. Remove from heat, and set aside.

  2. While the chickpeas cool (I like to serve this salad at room temperature), make the yogurt dressing by combining the yogurt, curry powder, and salt in a small bowl. If you need to thin it out a bit, particularly if you are using Greek yogurt, whisk in warm water a tablespoon at a time. Taste, adjust, and set aside.

  3. When you are ready to serve the salad, toss the chickpea mixture with most of the cilantro and most of the chopped red onion. Add about 1/2 of the yogurt dressing and toss again. If you like more dressing, keep adding until you are pleased. Serve on a platter sprinkled with the remaining onions and cilantro.

  4. Serves 4 as a side.
