My Unremarkable Chickpeas
It was prettyful, it was colourful, it was not tasty!
Chickpeas aka: Grabanzo Beans, I've realized I don't mind them! I quite like them as the main ingredient in hummus (especially roasted red pepper hummus). Earlier this summer my firend got a chickpea salad from the grocery store deli, delish. So I decided this week (remember trying new foods) to come up with my own chickpea creation to have little delightful zingy bites in my salad!
1/2c serving = 2 points
1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans) rinsed & drained
Eyeballed amount of Kraft Caloriewise Zesty Italian Dressing (great stuff its 5cal per tbsp!)
Sprinkling of dehydrated onion (too lazy to cut up red one I've got)
A little minced garlic
Chopped green, red & yellow peppers
Put it all in a container shake, shake, shake baby! Put in the fridge.
Well there were no delightful zingy bites in my lunchtime salad today. So I'm wondering what can I do to liven this up? I'd be interested in ideas or recepies! Chickpeas are an uncharted territory for me!
Should I put in REAL FRESH onion?
Olives might be tasty!
A little lemon or lime juice?
More dressing? Or perhaps the ones at the bottom will be super tasty tomorrow?
