  • 1 - 15 ounce can Chickpeas rinsed and drained
  • 1 English cucumber diced and seeds removed or 1 or 2 regular cucumber
  • 1 - 8 oz Sweet Drop Red Peppers or tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 small red onion sliced
  • 3 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
  • ½ cup pitted Black Olives
  • ½ cup pitted Green Olives
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste


  • Place the lemon juice, oil, garlic, and honey in a small bowl or bottle, wisk, or shake well.
  • Cut the cucumber in half lengthways, scoop out the seeds and cut into 1 cm (½ inch) slices. Cut the tomatoes into cubes roughly the same size as the chickpeas, cucumber, onion, parsley, and olives in the serving bowl.
  • Pour the dressing over the salad and toss lightly to combine. Serve at room temperature.


Chickpea, Cucumber and Olives Salad with Sweet Pepper Drops
  • Use canned chickpeas to make a quick salad - I use organic canned chickpeas
  • This salad last 2 - 4 days in the refrigerator
  • Use Fresh Herbs to make this salad. Fresh Parsley adds tons of flavor. Use Cilantro if preferred.
  • Chop your veggies into bite-sized pieces.
  • Use extra-virgin if possible, either plain or infused. Plain extra-virgin is less processed and has a lighter flavor. You can also use Noubess Sorrento Lemon Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil, or Noubess Blood Orange Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
  • Use bell peppers for a crunchier taste.
  • You can also add Feta Cheese for a Greek-inspired recipe.
  • Do Not over mix the salad, so you don't break the pepper drops.
  • Red Sweet Drop Red Peppers are soft, with a slightly pungent taste. You can find them at your local store, gourmet store, or online.
