Chick Pea Salad With Roasted Red Peppers

Ingredients

  • 2 large red peppers, roasted and skinned (great directions over here, if you’re new to this)
  • 3 c of cooked chickpeas, rinsed if canned (about 2 15-ounce cans)
  • ¼ c of parsley, chopped
  • 2 tbsp of chopped mint
  • 3 tbsp of capers, rinsed
  • 2 tbsp of fresh lemon juice or red wine or sherry vinegar
  • ¼ tsp of salt
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 4 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  1. Cut the peppers into half-inch wide strips and put them in a large bowl together with the chickpeas, herbs and the capers. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, salt, garlic and oil. Pour over the chickpea mixture and combine.Serve immediately, or refrigerate it for a day to get the flavors to mingle fantastically.

  1. This is a great make-ahead dish for weekday lunches. It would also be wonderful on a pile of torn lettuce, served with toasted pita wedges.
