Chickpeas, gorgeous bell peppers, green onion, cucumbers, and tomatoes are tossed in an easy, healthy olive oil and lemon juice dressing. Mint and delicate basil are added to the salad to bring it closer to perfection.

Remember that can of chickpeas you have in the pantry and have no clue what to do with it? This is the time to use it! I don’t know about you, but I personally always keep chickpeas cans in my pantry (organic).

It is a great shortcut to put a recipe together in no time when you don’t really have the time to cook them from scratch.

I use the chickpeas for making homemade hummus, add them to different salads, or for different heartwarming recipes like this  Moroccan Chicken Soup I made the other day.

Chickpeas have a lot of protein and as well lots of fiber, like the majority of beans. They are also very high in iron and calcium. I love them in all kinds of stews as they are perfect for the winter season, like this Chickpeas Green Beans with Pork and Spanish Chorizo.

However, for the warmer climates or seasons, I truly recommend this easy and delicious salad. It makes a wonderful lunch, gives you fiber and a little bit of protein, and as far as I know, it should have an important place in your “healthier recipes” collection.

There is no better way to add a little bit of protein to a salad than to add some sort of beans to it. Chickpeas, white beans, red beans, or lentils are always a great addition.

I make this salad a lot because it is one of the very few salads that I find satisfying as a meal. I also love the vegetables that go into it. Colorful, beautiful tomatoes, bell peppers, green onions, cucumbers…

I grew up with the combination of these vegetables, and I still go first for them every time I have the opportunity. Get here my favorite Tomato salad recipe.
