My Diary

Green bean Chickpea Salad

Green bean Chickpea Salad

It has been a long time since I have made a salad recipe. I need to make many more because with all the veggies we eat I truly should increase my salad recipe list. This green bean chickpea salad is super easy, tasty and gluten free. I hope you get to make it soon.

green-bean-tomato-salad-600x900

Ingredients:

1 lb fresh green beans
14 oz canned chickpeas
2-3 oz jar sun dried tomatoes
1 tbs black sesame seeds
6 oz feta cheese, crumbled, omit for vegans
15 oz canned black olives, sliced
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar

Directions:

In a double boiler-steamer or place a steel colander over some boiling water, place the green beans and cook for 6-8 minutes. Run cold water over them when they are tender so that they don’t keep cooking.

In a large mixing bowl add the rest of the ingredients. Add the green beans and mix through. Serve. This salad will keep covered in the refrigerator for up to two days.

Enjoy! 🙂
