Yesterday we had a very good friend over for dinner and we used the wonderful evening for a barbecue. I love to barbecue because there so many different recipes one can try, but I also love to eat many different salads as sides. One salad my family often makes is a chickpea salad in fresh yogurt with aromatic herbs. This salad is also a good option for vegetarian, as the chick peas fill you up and are a good source for proteins.
I like to use canned chickpeas, as it is quite time consuming to soak and cook then on your own. Now mix the chickpeas with the yogurt, salt, pepper, spring onion and vinegar. If required adjust the seasoning. Before serving add the chopped herbs and serve with the avocado. To add an extra layer to the dish, you can use homemade yogurt. Et voilà 🙂
