Chickpea Olive Salad

I first tasted this by my nephew’s bar mitzvah in the US. I could not stop eating it! (I paid for that later!!) The blend of textures and seasoning makes this salad really appealing. It has real zing to it. We make it often for Shabbos and it’s the first salad finished, so make more than you think you’ll need. Don’t worry — it does not taste “Israeli” because of the olives!

Main ingredients

Start Cooking

Prepare the Salad

  1. Combine the chickpeas, tomatoes, olives, and onion in a bowl.

Make the Dressing

  1. Combine the vinegar, sugar, water, salt, oil, and spices in a small bowl and mix well. Pour this over the salad and mix together. Enjoy!



I tested this recipe with just one tablespoon (!!!!) oil and the rest water. It is such a flavorful salad that no one tasted the difference. I might add that the original recipe called for 1/2 cup oil!



If you don’t like such tangy salads, put in less of each of the seasoning ingredients, proportionately. I do that sometimes, too.
