Chickpea Kale Salad

A friend recently posted this chickpea and kale salad on Pintrest and I have been meaning to try it ever since.  Courtesy of the Wishful Chef, I made it last night and it was sooooo good.    I loooove chickpeas and this is by far the best way I have ever eaten kale.

With one can of organic chickpeas, I chopped and mixed 4 leaves of organic kale, a few leaves of organic basil that I am growing in my kitchen window, and a handful of organic mixed baby lettuces.  I mixed it with a clove of garlic, a little olive oil and 1/2 a fresh, organic lemon.  I added a little salt and pepper.  I also used my zester to shred some parmesan (as I didn’t have romano) on top.

You all have to try this.  I will be making it all summer…and fall….and winter….Okay, so it’s a really great salad, all year round.  Thanks, Wishful Chef, for a really healthy, new salad.  Love it!  I can’t wait to go home and eat my leftovers.

  1. Yummy! All of my favorite things! I make a version but like the suggestion of adding in baby greens (even though they are now out of season and no longer present in my Arizona garden)

    • Thanks! when your greens are in season, add them! Let me know what you think. I am going to try it with parsley next time. I wish I could have a garden but my small NYC apartment isn’t conducive to gardening. :-/ One day though! Maybe a rooftop garden? :-)
