For the Salad:

For the Dressing:


For the Salad

  • Wash the parsley and mint, and pat dry.  Finely chop (or use a food processor!) each bunch of parsley, use both the leaves and stems.  Repeat with the mint, and add the greens to a large mixing bowl. Add drained chickpeas.
  • Finely dice the tomatoes (usually 3 large, or 1 pint of cherry).  I prefer to use cherry/grape tomatoes because they are a bit sweeter during the winter, but large roma or beefsteak tomatoes will work just fine anytime, especially in season!
  • Slice green onion and add to the bowl along with the greens and tomatoes.

For the Dressing

  • In a pint or quart sized mason jar: juice 2 large lemons, removing seeds.  Add equal part olive oil to the lemon juice.  Then using the garlic press (my preferred method!) press 2 large cloves of garlic into the dressing.  Add a lil salt, add a lil pepper, and shake the jar to combine.
  • If you want to spice it up, add a few red pepper flakes to the dressing too!
