Smashed Chickpea Salad

Ingredients:

  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons pitted, halved and very thinly sliced black olives
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped red onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • Zest and juice from half a lemon
  • Couple good pinches of salt
  • A few grinds of black pepper
  • A few glugs of olive oil

Mix everything but the olive oil in a small to midsize bowl. Lightly smash the chickpea mixture with the back of a fork or a potato masher. You’re not looking for a hummus-like puree but something closer to a coarse chop with a few smaller bits to hold it together. Add the glugs of olive oil, mix it lightly

Serve as is on toasted bread, or add in a slice of roasted red pepper, lettuce, and/or harissa

From Smitten Kitchen. Makes enough filling for four sandwiches
