Chickpea Salad

Chickpea Salad |

Although Autumn has already welcomed us here, it’s still so hot and we still prefer having light dishes for lunch. Do you remember piyaz, a very common bean salad here? I wanted to try a similar one with chickpeas today, with an addition. I’m sure you all love hummus. What makes this dip that delicious? For me, it’s the combination of chickpeas and tahini. So I decided to prepare a dressing with tahini for this chickpea salad. And the reasult was perfect!

You can have this salad as it is or with some roasted vegetables.
