Trust Me


I'm one of those people who goes through food cravings and I'll eat the same thing for days or weeks in a row because I'm so obsessed with it.  (Even things like salami or soup for breakfast. )  I've been making this chickpea salad lately and I love it so much I wanted to share.  It's so easy.

Just mix these ingredients together:
- Canned chickpeas
-Diced tomatoes
-diced onions
-chopped fresh pasley
-olive oil
-lemon juice
-fresh garlic (if you know your family & friends love you know matter what)
-paprika
-salt & pepper & garlic salt to taste
-Finally , weird as it sounds, add capers & parmesan cheese. I swear it's good.

...It's so easy & even better if you can make it a few hours before you eat it so it has time to marinate.  looove it on day 2.   We've been having it with warm pitas & feta...  mm mm goodness

ps- I promise I'll post pics of my laundry room as soon as I can get it clean enough to photograph!!  (I found the fabric for the curtains at Lewis & Sharon)

xoxo, Lauren

This is so funny! I'm the exact same way with food; right now I'm obsessed with chicken tikka masala. I've had it probably seven times in the last five days!!

The recipe sounds great!!

Tricia - A Rosy Note said...

This looks and sounds so good! I like that there is no meat in it. I bet it would be tasty with a crunchy french bread too...kind of like a bruschetta :)

Joyful said...

That sounds good. I make a salsa that is similar.

I love chickpeas! Being a vegetarian, I eat them frequently. I also love capers so this is one dish I'm definitely going to try.

I am exactly the same way! At least I'm off my "all I eat is birthday cake ice cream" kick!!! Although actually I was slightly thinner than now and (according to my physical during the ice cream extravaganza) quite healthy all-around!!

Hi Lauren! I was wondering if you could tell me where you found the round black wire lamp in your living room? I've been looking for a similar one, with no luck. Thanks!

I've been making the very same salad for years - I always get asked to bring it along especially to bbqs. The only difference is I also add 1/2 cup of currants - soak the currants in boling water for a few mins, drain allow to cool and add to salad....simply stunning!

kayce hughes said...

Sounds like my kind of dish. I m going to try it this week.

Just Like Any Other Girl, Only More So said...

Yummy! These are almost the same ingredients for my Orzo salad! (minus capers, parm cheese and paprika) Just add red wine vinegar, water, mint, honey and orzo. So good! I love chickpeas!

oneshabbychick said...

Looks and sounds GOOD. I'm trying that with pita and feta TOMORROW.
I've been enjoying your blog and was really pleased to see you in BHG - Congrats!
