Ingredients

For the Dressing

  • 2 tbsp. freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • black pepper to taste

For the Salad

  • 15 oz can organic chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 c red onion, diced
  • 1 medium cucumber, diced
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 c pomegranate seeds (optional)

Instructions

  1. Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a bowl until they are well combined. If you feel like getting extra zesty, zest a little bit of the orange and lemon into the dressing. Set aside.
  2. Once you have drained and rinsed the chickpeas, add them to a large salad bowl. Pour in the remaining salad ingredients and mix to combine.
  3. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss well, ensuring all of the ingredients are coated. Serve and enjoy!
