Minty Chickpea salad is perfect option for summer season in which we combine boiled white chickpeas with fresh vegetables such as cucumber, tomatoes, onion, and coriander and lemon juice. To give Indian touch, we added instant pudina chutney version as dressing.
Chickpeas are rich in iron, protein, and folic acid. Curd and mint both add the tangy flavor with increase the level of calcium and vitamin. Chill this salad always before serving. Even you can serve this salad with boiled pastas or canapes as snack or starter.
I shared this recipe under the kids delight theme summer salad for Blogging Marathon June series. Hope kids love it. You can replace the white chickpeas with black chickpeas or green chickpeas. Both are great source of protein and iron.
For more variation, you can add lettuce, iceberg, rocket leaves, corn and more ingredients.
