A Hearty Chickpea Salad That’s Versatile Too!

This recipe is super versatile: you can use whatever produce you have on hand. I made this salad very simply with cabbage, carrots, and green onions – but other veggies would be fantastic! Refreshing chopped cucumber, sliced radishes, or red onions would also be delish.

How Do I Make This Thai Chickpea Salad with Peanut Sauce Dressing?

  1. Open the cans of cooked chickpeas, and rinse under cold water in a strainer. Drain chickpeas and add to a large bowl.
  2. To the chickpeas, add the chopped carrot, red cabbage, corn, green onions, and chopped peanuts.
  3. Add all dressing ingredients to a mason jar, seal with a lid, and shake well to combine. Pour the dressing over the chickpea salad and toss the salad well. Garnish with extra peanuts or green onions if desired. Serve and enjoy!
 

Dietary Modifications

  • For a nut-free version: If you are allergic to peanuts you can use pumpkin seeds or  sunflower seeds for a tree-nut free version. Just make sure you also use a sunflower seed butter to replace the peanut butter too.
  • This recipe is gluten free: if you aren’t GF then you can use regular soy sauce instead of the GF alternative tamari.
  • This recipe is vegan & vegetarian, but if you aren’t meatless you can add a cooked protein of your choice.
