Lunch Time

What else do I eat? My go to ingredient (besides garlic) is Chickpeas. Cecci. Garbanzo. Whatever you call them; i love 'em. I have them almost every day on my salad. Here's a typical lunch (when I'm out of greens).

Mediterranean Chickpea Salad

1 Can Chickpeas, drained
4-6 Sundried Tomatoes (packed in oil preferred)
4-6 Olives, sliced
Chives or green onions, chopped fine, to taste
Basil or mint chiffonade
lemon juice & olive oil*
Salt & pepper
Extras/substitutions/options: leafy greens, small bits of broccoli or julienne carrots, sliced hard boiled egg, nuts, tofu, your favourite viniagrette

1.Combine all stuff, adding or removing to personal taste
2.Adjust vinaigrette to taste, and combine.

my favourite thing about this salad is how hearty, healthy and portable it is!


  1. That is a delicious looking salad and so healthy. Thumbs up to a great lunch :)

  2. Thanks, Ben! Somehow I never tire of it, you should definitely try it!
