Ways to Beat the Heat, #4 (Chickpea Salad)

2 great iPhotos

Salads. Fresh mixed salad green from the farmer’s market, with carrots, scallion, red pepper and grapes, topped with a bit of Italian dressing. Also, chickpea salad on sourdough bread, bread also from the farmer’s market. In the chickpea salad are garlic scapes, also from… the farmer’s market. I think you see a pattern here.

I’m sure you know how to make chickpea salad, but in case you didn’t here goes this version:

Chickpea Salad

1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
1 small onion, minced
1 garlic scape, sliced
2 Tbs Vegenaise
salt & pepper, to taste

Smash up the chickpeas, then mix everything together. That’s all!

    I just made a chickpea salad pita sandwich with your recipe — yum! This is an excellent substitute for tuna or chicken salad. Next time, I’ll try it with some capers too. Also, dried cranberries would be delicious.

    Thanks for the “beat the heat” recipes!
