INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas, or 1 ¼ (15-ounce) cans, drained, rinsed, and cooled to room temperature
  • ¾ cup quartered cherry tomatoes
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice (from about 1 large lemon)
  • 2 tablespoons packed, finely chopped fresh mint
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • freshly cracked sea or Himalayan salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper

Each bite of this mint lemonade chickpea salad is like a drop of sunshine for your taste buds. Mint and lemon are no flavor strangers, and although both can be quite bold, they work wonderfully together, especially in this dressing.
