I know this is the eighth or ninth chickpea salad recipe on the blog, but love 'em or hate 'em, I'm gonna keep makin 'em.*

  • 2 cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup freshly chopped parsley
  • 1/2 cup dried Turkish apricots, sliced into thin slivers
  • 12-14 kalamata olives, pitted and coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

If you keep this salad for more than a few days, add fresh herbs before serving it. Leftovers were especially delicious served over a pile of arugula.

In a large serving bowl, combine the chickpeas, parsley, apricots and olives.

In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, Dijon mustard, garlic, paprika, oregano, marjoram and salt. Pour the vinaigrette over the chickpeas mixture, and stir to combine. Let the salad chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving.

Makes 8 side dish servings.
