This salad comes together very quickly and would be just as tasty with any of your favorite herbs if you don’t have parsley–cilantro or basil would work particularly well. Because the dressing is all in the chickpeas and onions, this is a great lunch salad–pack your lettuce and chickpea mix separately and combine when you’re ready to eat.


  • ¼ cup thinly sliced red onions
  • 1 (19 oz.) can chickpeas, rinsed
  • ½ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. capers
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 head red leaf lettuce, chopped


  1. Toss onion, chickpeas, parsley, lemon juice, oil and capers together in a large salad bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Serve over lettuce.
