Whenever I boil chickpeas I always think that I will keep some aside for salad but somehow there is none left. This time, I had kept them aside for making falafel but kids insisted on having the salad. Can’t really blame them it is so hot these days that salads are everyone’s first preference.

Kids loved this salad so much that I was not sure there will be enough left for taking photos.
You can add whatever you like to the salad. I have added onions, tomato capsicum, green chilies, and coriander. You can add red and yellow peppers, cucumber, beetroots whatever you like.
The salad is quite filling and yummy. It’s perfect for lunch if you want to skip proper food and have only this salad.
