I usually season Chickpea Salad with Salt and Black Pepper, most likely with Lemon Juice, Olive Oil and Parsley. Today I used Ground Chilli and Ground Cumin for a change, and it was so good. If you enjoy Coriander, add Coriander instead of Parsley. It turns into a totally different salad.


4 Servings


1 can (400g) Chickpeas *rinsed and drained
1/2 Continental Cucumber OR 1 Lebanese Cucumber
1 Tomato
1/4 Red Onion
*Note: You can add Garlic, Capsicum, Carrot, etc.
2 to 3 tablespoons chopped Coriander *OR Parsley
1 tablespoon Oil *I used Sunflower Oil
1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
1/4 teaspoon ground Chilli *add more if you like
1/4 teaspoon ground Cumin *add more if you like
1/2 teaspoon Salt

  1. Cut Cucumber and Tomato into small pieces. Finely chop up Onion. Coarsely chop up Coriander leaves (OR Parsley).
  2. Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix to combine.
