here's what you'll need for chickpea salad for two...
1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/2 shallot, lightly sauteed if desired to take the "edge" off
2 tbsp mayonnaise
2 tbsp plain, full-fat yogurt (or sour cream)
1 tbsp horseradish sauce
salt & pepper
herbs - i used chopped basil and chives
1. lightly mash 1/2 of the chickpeas and leave the other 1/2 of the can whole (for texture reasons :-)
2. mix everything together!
serve by itself, with a pickle or over lettuce to make it into a true salad.
i think this could also be great with chopped nuts -- like walnuts or pecans -- and sliced grapes. i'll let you know if i come up with any other concoctions that are worthwhile.
