"I make this salad very often to eat for lunch throughout the week. My daughter really loves it. Easily halved, although honestly, we polish this off quickly because it is so tasty. Granulated garlic is sold in the spice section and comes in small tiny pieces; this is not the same product as garlic powder. This will keep all week in your fridge, if it lasts that long. Originally found on several different blogs, this is my variation. Prep times does not include chilling, servings are an estimate."

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



This was excellent! I halved it and we'll get 8 side-dish servings out of it. I was out of red onion, so I used Vidalia. I also used matchstick carrots (about 1/3 cup) and about 1/3 cup each red, yellow, and orange bell pepper. Next time, I'll use green instead of orange for better colour contrast. I used both parsley and mint, left out the salt entirely, and used 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder in the dressing.

A great salad. I am always watching for recipes that I think my vegetarian friend would love, this Chickpea Cucumber Salad tasted as good as I thought it would. Can't wait to serve it next time we do lunch! Used fresh from the garden cucumbers, onion, carrots and snipped in fresh parlsey. For the peppers I diced in yellow bell. Have to agree, it is so a repeatable.
