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.)
|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|
I think maybe the kids liked the colors.
