Vegan Chickpea Salad

Quick and easy vegan chickpea salad | All that's Jas
Vegan, gluten-free fresh summer salad that is super quick and easy to make

Need a fresh summer meal that comes together quickly? This beautiful chickpea salad brings all the fresh flavors to your table. Fresh vegetables, herbs, and a light dressing make this gluten-free and vegan dish a must try!

Standing behind a stove in the heat of summer is the last thing I want to do but I still want a wholesome meal that will fill me up.  This fresh chickpea salad is a great choice for lunch and it’s extremely healthy. Furthermore, it’s an excellent source of protein, so if you’re a vegan or vegetarian you’re in luck.

I took this salad to lunch and my co-workers thought it looked and smelled so good, they didn’t leave me alone until I shared some of the salad with them. They loved it! But there was almost nothing left for me. Sheesh.


The other great thing about this salad is that it can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days and it will taste just as great, but trust me it won’t last that long. If you’re not a fan of chickpeas try similar, but equally delicious quinoa salad.

    We love chick peas and put them on salads all the time. This salad looks great. I don’t like tomatoes so I would have to put something else in its place. That’s what makes it so versatile.
    Thanks for sharing at Happiness Is Homemade Party.

    Jas I can definitely see making this. Everytime I go to the supermarket with the hubs, he always buys bags of chickpeas. Just in case he says. I guess it’s from the time he was a little boy and his mother made his chickpea soup!
