Chickpeas are a common element in my Mediterranean recipes. I use these protein-packed beans in soups like this vegetarian take on Tunisian Lablabi,

purée them for hummus, and utilize the flour in gluten-free breads like Farinata. I also frequently add bulk to my greens by preparing chickpea salad, which has unlimited varieties.

I have a number of Mediterranean chickpea salad recipes on the site, like this loaded Chickpea Salad with Eggplant and Za'atar,

this Middle Eastern Balela Salad with Sun-Dried tomatoes, and even a Chickpea Egg Salad, to mention a few.

But this vegan chickpea salad recipe is one of my all-time favorites. It has roasted red peppers, crunchy cucumbers, grape tomatoes, and creamy avocado.

I combine it all with fresh herbs and a peppery Dijon dressing seasoned with spicy Aleppo pepper and acidic sumac.
