Chickpea Salad

Make a full batch of the roasted chickpeas and enjoy the leftovers for snacks. Added to salads, they offer a nice, flavorful crunch that, packed with protein and fiber, will keep you full. The dressing, however, is what really makes this salad pop. Whisk up extra and store in the fridge for easy, protein-packed dressings for your favorite salads.

Ingredients

  • Roasted Chickpeas:

    • 1 (29 oz.) can no-salt-added chickpeas, rinsed and well-drained
    • ⅛ tsp. cayenne
    • ½ tsp. garlic powder
    • ½ tsp. cumin
    • ½ tsp. paprika

    Dressing:

    • ½ cup hummus
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 tsp. dried dill
    • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
    • Water to thin

    Salad:

    • 8 oz. spring mix lettuce
    • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
    • ¼ cup red onion, thinly sliced
    • ¾ cup chopped fresh parsley
    • 20 low-sodium whole grain pita chips, crushed

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Toss chickpeas with spices and roast in a single layer on a baking sheet, stirring every 10 minutes, until crunchy (30-40 minutes).
  2. Whisk together hummus, garlic, dill, and lemon juice in a small mixing bowl. Whisk in just enough warm water to make pourable.
  3. Toss salad ingredients together with dressing and half of the roasted chickpeas.
