Healthy, Refreshing and Fulfilling 

Chickpea Salad with Parsley & Tahini

I believe that the most fascinating in cooking is to succeed a dish of your creativity. I tend to do that often, creating dishes of my liking by bringing together ingredients I love or cuisines I have enjoyed. This salad is one of them.

Parsley Chickpea Veggie SaladInspired by my travels and based on the Lebanese Cuisine, I combine chickpeas, fresh parsley, green pepper, cucumber, and spring onions. I dress it up with Tahini, and season with dry mint, garlic, lemon and extra-virgin olive oil. As a final touch, I sprinkle on our famous Dry Zaatar mixture.

I usually love to mix it all and leave it to chill in the fridge for few minutes, then sprinkle the Zaatar moments before serving. You may do that or serve it with the dressing on the side as in my picture here.

Refreshing, fulfilling, and super nutritious you will enjoy its delicious taste, prepared alone as an in-between meals, or siding a main dish of your choice.
