Chickpea & Apple Salad

Monday, February 12, 2018

We've been trying to incorporate a bit of salads into our everyday meals. I've always been a salad fan but when you start eating salads  more often, it does get challenging because you don't want to be bored with the same flavours & dressings.

I've been experimenting with new flavours lately & I now have a few good salad recipes that I can bank on.


A bowl of salad can definitely replace one of your meals if it is well balanced with all the macro nutrients.

This Chickpea & Apple Salad filling is one such. It is full of flavours & is very filling too. This can be a great salad for parties or Potlucks 

You Will Need:

  • 1 cup Chickpeas
  • 2 large Apples
  • 1 Red Onion
  • 1 A handful of Walnuts
  • 1/2 Red Pepper
  • 1/2 Yellow Pepper
  • 1 cup Rocket Leaves
  • 4-5 slices of Pickled Jalapeños 
  • Croutons - Optional

  • 2 Tablespoon  Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp Red Chilli Flakes
  • 1/4 tsp Dried Parsley
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • Himalayan Pink Salt


Pressure cook Chickpeas in salted water until soft. Drain & set aside. 

Dice Apples & Bell Peppers. Finely chop rocket leaves & Onion

In a small bowl, Add all the ingredients mentioned in the Dressing list & whisk 

In a large bowl, add chickpeas, Apples, Peppers, Rocket Leaves, Onions & Jalapeños. Add the dressing & give it a mix well.

Let it sit in the refrigerator to 20-30 minutes.  Top with Walnuts & Croutons before serving
