Chickpea Pomegranate Salad


1 cup pomegranate arils

1 cup chickpeas

½ cup diced cucumber

½ cup diced red onion

2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon lemon juice

Salt, to taste

Ground black pepper, to taste


In a large bowl, mix all ingredients. The salad is ready to be served.


I make this constantly and everyone loves it. I do squeeze the starchy bit off the garbanzo beans which is a little time consuming. Basically, it takes about an hour to make (between de-pitting the pomegranate and squeezing the starch off the chic peas and making the rest) and then ten minutes to eat. BAM! Best salad ever.

I would not classify myself as a health nut, but darn it, this is so good that it’s gonna make me vegetarian!
