Fresh Vegan Corn and Chickpea Salad
I always bring a bowl of this Fresh Corn and Chickpea Salad on family picnics. One of our favorite family pastimes in summer is to take a picnic and drive to a nearby forest or lake and spend the day splashing about or climbing trees. Of course, all that outdoor activity means big appetites when lunchtime comes around! We love the crunch of the fresh corn and the freshness of the cucumber and lime juice. The addition of chickpeas makes this is a filling picnic lunch.
It couldn’t be easier to throw this salad together. Start by mixing the corn, chickpeas and cucumber together in a bowl. Lightly fry the scallions, then coat everything with olive oil, lime juice and cilantro leaves. A delicious lunch in under 15 minutes.
