Chickpea Salad with Basil

Chickpea salad! I love chickpeas and this salad is another light meal for the summer.  Plus it is super fast to toss together and very flavorful!  My mom makes a version of this with chickpeas, tomatoes, and balsamic vinaigrette.  Here’s a version that uses basil and a different combo of vinegars for the dressing.

This recipe was adapted from Green Light Bites:


  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, quartered
  • basil leaves, chopped (I didn’t measure how many, just estimated)
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tbsp agave
  • pinch of salt

Directions: Mix everything together in a medium bowl and chill for at least 20 minutes to allow flavors to merge.

This picture looks like a TON of tomatoes, but really I just took the picture real fast and didn’t take the time to mix it better.
