Healthy Chickpea Salad

Fast and yummy.  Makes a great lunch or a dinner side dish. Recipe is easily halved for a small group or doubled for a crowd!

Healthy Chickpea Salad

2 cans black beans (drained and rinsed)
2 cans chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
1/2 red onion (chopped)
20 cherry tomatoes (halved)
1/2 cup fresh parsley (chopped)
1/2 cup fresh mint (chopped)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup lemon juice
Salt and pepper
Crumbled feta cheese


In a large bowl, combine the chickpeas, black beans, red onion, cherry tomatoes, fresh parsley, and fresh mint.

In another small bowl, mix together olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Pour over the salad and toss to coat.

Top with crumbled feta cheese. Enjoy!

A quick way to halve cherry tomatoes is to place them all on a small plate, top with another plate you have inverted, and then insert a sharp knife between the two plates.  While pressing down on the top plate enough to stabilize the tomatoes, you can just saw you way across with the knife between the two plates and all the tomatoes are sliced at once.  Or do them one at a time.  Whatever.
