Nearly Award Winning Chickpea Salad

by A.J. Coltrane

Ok, so it was up against two potato salads and this dessert, and the dessert won the “winner” medal,  even though the dessert wasn’t a “side dish”, which is what the medal was supposed to be for, but I’m not bitter at all, even though a dessert isn’t technically a side dish, I don’t think anyway… don’t you agree?

Seriously, the medal said “WINNER” on it.

Anyhow, here’s the chickpea salad recipe that I “borrowed” from somewhere and I can’t find the recipe again, but it’s always a hit. Even the 1,000,000 kids at the BBQ ate it, they about wiped out a big tupperware container of the stuff. (At least it seemed like 1,000,000 kids.)

Ingredient Action Required
3 cans chickpeas opened, rinsed
1 English cucumber diced to chickpea size
1 Red pepper diced to chickpea size
1 med. red onion finely diced
1/2 bunch parsley minced
2 large lemons juiced
1/4-1/2 cup olive oil add to taste
salt add to taste
pepper optional

I think maybe the kids liked the colors.
