Cucumber Chick Pea Salad

I am absolutely in love with the bagged lunch ideas on Always Order Dessert. As an unpaid intern with only a small stipend for transportation and lunch, not buying lunch three days a week really adds up at the end of the month. In addition to being extremely portable, this cucumber chickpea salad is also just a great summer salad — I can imagine bringing this dish to a barbecue as an alternative to potato salad or wilted greens. The cilantro is a refreshing touch, and the lime juice keeps the salad looking and tasting fresh even after a few days in the fridge.


-1 can chickpeas

-1 cucumber, diced

-1 bunch cilantro, stems removed, leaves chopped finely

-1/2 small onion, diced

-3 tbsp olive oil

-3 tbsp lemon juice

-1 tsp red wine vinegar

-Salt and pepper

This is probably the easiest recipe ever. It might not even qualify as a recipe. Just chop cucumbers, onion, and cilantro.

Combine in a bowl or tupperware container with the rest of the ingredients.

Shake. Serve. Enjoy.
