MEDITERRANEAN CHICKPEA SALAD


My dish for this month's potluck party hosted by Jagruti  is  healthy Mediterranean Salad. All the ingredients are easily available and it makes a light meal by itself.

Ingredients:
Chickpeas ... 1 cup (boiled)
Tomatoes ... 1 (diced)  ( I have used cherry tomatoes)
Olives ....... 6-7 (sliced)
Onion ....... 1 chopped into small pieces
Parsley .... handful  (chopped )  you may substitute it with coriander
Feta cheese .....2 tbsps (crumbled)  you may substitute this with paneer

For the dressing:
Olive oil .... 1 tbsp
Lemon juice or vinegar .. 1 tbsp ( I have used Balsamic Vinegar )
Garlic ..... 2 cloves (crushed)
Hung curd ... 1 tbsp
Black pepper ... to taste
Salt .......... to taste
Zattar .... 1 tsp ( if you don't have you can skip it. Use crushed bhuna jeera instead )

Method:
1. Mix all the salad ingredients.
2. In a bowl whisk together the dressing ingredients.
3. Pour the dressing in the salad ingredients and toss them well.
Refrigerate and serve it chilled.

  10. Luci, put the yogurt in a muslin cloth and hang it to drain the water.. the thick residue which we get in the cloth is called hung curd.
