Fresh Chickpea Salad Recipe with Lemon and Dill

We just love this chickpea salad recipe with bright lemon, fresh dill, crisp cucumber and sweet tomatoes. To make it, we use canned chickpeas, so this one is extra easy.

Make Our Chickpea Salad Recipe For Now Or In Advance

You can even make this chickpea salad ahead of time – overnight even works. If you are making this up to one hour in advance, just toss, cover and keep in the refrigerator. If you want to make it more than one hour in advance, keep the tomatoes separate until an hour before serving as they can become mushy.

Oh I forgot all about my chickpea addiction that I just recently suffered from. There could be worse things! This looks great! :)

Love chickpeas, this is delicious. May I suggest perhaps that you please try Caerphilly cheese (from Wales,UK) in place of the feta. It has a similar tart after-taste to feta. Just LOVE it crumbled in salads.

Can’t wait to try this…but could you put serving sizes on your recipes (i.e. 1 cup)? The last few I’ve read/tried don’t specify and we are trying to be “mindful eaters”. Thanks!

Just discovered your blog via http://www.foodgawker.com Made this colorful salad for Memorial Day..so easy and fast. Everyone loved it. Love, love, love Feta Cheese..will make this again and add red pepper AND Kalamata olives!!! Also made your chewy oatmeal raisin cookies-outstanding! Five stars! Last night I made your Lemon Chicken…again excellent. Next making your macaroni and cheese with pumpkin later this week.

This is my second time making this salad. I added a mango to it and it was divine. Kid approved as well. Easy to throw together. Thanks for a great healthy recipe.

Great idea to add mango!
