Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4-5
  • 2 cups chickpeas, rinsed and drained if canned
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 2 medium yellow tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 2 tbsp capers
  • 1 tbsp mayo
  • 3 oz plain low-fat yogurt
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp cholulua (optional)
  1. Place chickpeas in a large mixing bowl. Mash slightly with the back of a fork or spoon - leave some whole for texture.
  2. Add in all other ingredients. Mix to combine thoroughly.
  3. Taste and adjust for seasonings. I did not add extra salt - I found the capers provided enough salt for this salad.
  4. Allow to sit in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Serve cold in a whole wheat tortilla or pita bread!
