Curried Chickpea, Tomato, and Cucumber Salad

25 Jul

So I ate a super delicious lunch this afternoon and I am so excited to share it with you all! I don’t have an official name for it..but I guess I’ll call it “Curried Chickpea, Tomato, and Cucumber Salad.” I love Indian food ( I’m half Indian) and this salad is a quick and easy way to get the indian food flavor without the effort.

Ingredients

1 large can of chickpeas

1/2 red onion thinly sliced

1/2 cucumber sliced

3 roma tomatoes diced

2 tbs of olive oil

Juice of 1 lemon

1/2 teaspoon of curry powder

1/2 teaspoon of cumin powder

2-3 tbs of yogurt (I used tzatziki from Trader Joe’s)

Directions

Mix chickpeas, red onion, cucumber, and tomatoes in a large bowl

Step 1

 

In a container mix olive oil, lemon, curry powder, and cumin.

Pour dressing over the veggies and mix well

Top off the dish with 2-3 tbs of yogurt.

Enjoy!

 

Deliciousness!

This salad was so easy to make! It is full of protein thanks to the chickpeas and yogurt. This recipe yields about 3 servings..so I have leftovers in the fridge! Yum 🙂

 

Tonight I am heading out for a 4 mile run with a great friend! Although I am feeling tired, I’m looking forward to catching up with her own our old cross country practice stomping grounds!

Have a wonderful Wednesday loves!
