Chick-Pea Salad with Red Onion and Tomato

December 28th, 2008 . by bonnie

From the kitchen of Yvette Lepage and Mark Tendick 

Who says you need meat for protein?  Chick peas are high in protein, as well as in fiber and iron.  Tasty too.  So, eat up!


1 can chick peas (19 oz.)

2 tbsp finely chopped red onion or green onions

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tomato, diced

½ cup chopped parsley

3 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp lemon juice

salt and pepper to taste


In salad bowl, combine all ingredients and toss.  Chill for 2 hours to blend and develop flavours before serving. Taste and adjust seasoning.  Makes 4 servings
