Chickpeas, Asparagus & a Splash of Lemon Salad
Chickpeas, Asparagus and a Splash of Lemon Salad
So Ms. Molly, who's delightful blog, Orangette, I can't get enough of, had a chickpea salad recipe published in the April issue of Bon Appetit. It caught my fancy especially considering the case of chickpeas (garbanzo beans) I have in the garage that needs to be used up. Of course, I had to give it my own twist such as adding asparagus to it and setting it on a bed of lettuce. Simply delightful. A welcome change from all the winter food we've been having for so so long.
Gently stir in your chickpeas, asparagus and Parmesan.
Spoon onto a bed of baby greens or whatever greens you love.
Munch away. Enjoy...
PS: A dear friend of mine told me that her sister mixed together garbanzo/chickpeas, sliced cherry tomatoes, olive oil and kosher salt this past weekend and served it alongside grilled steaks.
