Many of you have asked about the recipe for this dish that I served over the weekend, so I’ll give it to you simply- because it’s one of the easiest dishes to make, and super simple and healthy.


Chickpea & Cilantro Salad

By Yvonne Published: October 17, 2013

  • Yield: 12 Servings
  • Prep: 10 mins

Quick, easy, fresh- isn't that what you like to hear when you want something good to eat but don't feel like fussing over your food? This is the dish to make- for lunch, dinner, as a side dish and even for a party, like I did.



  1. Add chickpeas to the bowl you will serve the finished dish. Add the cucumber and cilantro.
  2. In a separate bowl or dish, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Pour over the chickpeas, cucumbers and cilantro.
  3. Combine everything together and serve immediately or chill until it's time to serve.

  1. hi Yvonne, This recipe just perfect for me however, I have 2 questions: 1. What is ground bla? 2. Can English cucumber be replaced by Japanese Kyuri cucumber as it is plenty to get here in Malaysia? Thank you :)
    • Freshly ground black pepper- sorry, the entire word didn't come out in the recipe. Yes, use whichever type of cucumbers you have locally on hand.
