Ingredients
  • For the Crispy Chickpeas
  • 1 15 ounce can chickpeas rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons ground coriander
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • fresh ground pepper to taste
  • For the salad:
  • 4 medium Persian cucumbers washed, trimmed, and diced (about 2 cups)
  • 2 cups halved cherry or diced Roma tomatoes
  • ¼ of a medium red onion thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup loosely packed flat leaf parsley chopped
  • ½ cup loosely packed mint leaves chopped
  • Zoe's Copycat Dressing
  • ½ cup diced or crumbled Feta cheese
  • flaky sea salt to taste
  • fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • ½ fresh lemon
Instructions
  1. For the chickpeas, heat olive oil in a medium size sauté pan over medium heat. Add coriander, cumin, cayenne, salt and a few grinds of fresh ground pepper. Cook for 10-15 seconds until fragrant.
  2. Add chickpeas and stir to coat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until chickpeas begin to brown. Continue to pan-fry until the chickpeas become as toasty as you’d like.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine chopped cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, parsley, and mint.

  4. Drizzle with a bit of Zoe’s Copycat Dressing, and toss to combine.
  5. Top with Feta and crispy chickpeas.
  6. Finish with a pinch of flaky sea salt, a grind of fresh ground pepper and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
