How to Make this Chickpea Salad:

Make your dressing

In a medium bowl (or in a large glass measuring cup), whisk together the dressing ingredients. You can add the cilantro in here, or you can add it directly to the salad. It will get mixed in either way, so it’s totally up to you.

Chop your ingredients & rinse your chickpeas

Technically, you can just drain your chickpeas (and save the aquafaba if you want), but I always rinse mine. I like to make sure I get off all the excess aquafaba, and I usually leave my chickpeas in the strainer until I’m ready to add them to the salad.

Chop all of your ingredients and add them to a large mixing bowl. I like to see my cucumber to prevent excess water in my salad, but if you’re in a rush or don’t feel like it, that’s completely okay.
