  • 1 15 oz canned Chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tbsp Shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup Italian Flatleaf Parsley, loosely packed and then roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Olive Oil, extra virgin
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt, flaky if possible
  • 1/8 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/4 tsp Lemon Pepper, freshly ground


  • Drain and rinse the chickpeas and put in a medium-sized bowl
  • Add the shallot
  • Add the Italian Parsley
  • Add the lemon juice, olive oil, sea salt, red pepper flakes and lemon pepper
  • Stir to combine and serve


  • Chickpeas are also known as Garbanzo beans...same bean, different name :)
  • If you don't have a shallot, use any kind of onion you have, just be sure to slice it as thin as possible
  • My favorite flaky sea salt is Maldon
  • Add more red pepper flakes if you like it spicy
  • Use freshly ground black pepper instead of Lemon Pepper if that's what you have
  • You can easily double this recipe
  • This salad keeps very well in the fridge for a couple of days
