Chickpea salad

Monday is a legumes day for me either summer or winter. I love legumes salad, and this chickpeas salad is one of the ones that I like the most.

Chickpea salad

1 1/2 cups of dry chickpeas
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
1/2 cup plain yogurt
3 tablespoons of mustard
3 tablespoons of olive oil
1 can of tuna
Juice of 1 lemon
herbs of your choice. I used dill and oregano
Black olives
boiled eggs

Soak the chickpeas overnight. Cook them as usual. I use 25 minutes in a pressure cooker.

When they are cooked, place them in a big salad bowl. Add the black olives, tuna and capers to the cooked chickpeas. You can add what you have. Sometimes I used carrots, feta cheese, cucumbers or anything you have in the fridge. Mix the mayonnaise, yogurt, mustard, olive oil, lemon juice, and herbs. Mix this dressing with the chickpeas. Correct it for salt and pepper. I always use more mustard. Serve it with hard boiled eggs. ENJOY!!


  1. We had a similar salad the other day too. Love the add of boiled eggs for the extra protein boost.

  2. Chickpeas are a staple in our house. We use them in many different dishes, hot and cold. Sometimes we just eat them as a snack. This recipe looks like a nice easy summer treat.

  3. Hola Marcela a tu ensalada le cambiaría los garbanzos por alubias se puede? Es que los garbanzos me hacen mal y se ve genial. Besinos wapa

    1. Fely!...claro que si creo te quedaria bien con te gusta la combinacion de alubias con atun, te va a quedar delicioso!......Abrazotes, Marcela

  4. Of all the different kinds of beans, I would say that I like chickpeas the best. This recipes sounds wonderful especially with the addition of the black olives and capers. Yum !
