I told you guys I rarely read recipes, right? It’s funny but when I read them and actually find out what’s in the dish I’m not as inspired to make it. Oh I’m an odd duck, I know. lol Anyway I saw this recipe or should I say picture of Kalyn’s Carrot, Parsley, and Garbanzo (Chickpea) Salad with Feta and Cumin and I immediately got an idea for my own Chickpea and feta idea.

Cilantro, Lime and Chickpea Salad with Feta

Here’s what I cam up with. Oh! and I didn’t have any red onion although I think is would be great in this. I just decided to skip onion all together.

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 limes
  • 1/2 tbsp honey (10g)
  • Kosher Salt
  • Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 can of Chickpeas (Garbanzo beans) drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup grated carrots
  • 1/2 cup Fresh cilantro
  • 2 oz Feta Cheese

Gather all your ingredients.

Grate the carrots.

Rinse the chickpeas.

Loosely chop the cilantro.

Start by making the dressing.

Remove some of the peel from the limes with the grater. You don’t have to get it all just about a tsp or two to bump up the flavor. Add the peel, the olive oil, honey, salt, pepper and juice from both limes to a bowl and whisk.

In a larger bowl add the chickpeas, carrots, feta and cilantro. Pour the dressing over. Toss and eat!

    This looks great, I’ve been trying to eat beans more frequently lately. Its such a great source of protein I’d never thought of mixing cheese with them, this might help convince my kids to try them out. Great recipe.

    Hi Roni,
    In the ingredients list you forgot the feta! The reduced fat would work great here too! I lost 157 pounds!! Keep up the great work and great recipes.

    OMG! You’re right! Geesh…. I think I’m getting senile! lol

    Reduced fat would be great. They only sent me regular for this batch. I’m hoping to try the reduced fat net week.

    Mm! I was just checking out Kalyn’s recipe this morning! Now I have to try making both! (although I did think of my own “rendition” as well!) :)
