A lighter, easier take on creamy potato salad, this recipe uses organic canned chickpeas in place of potatoes and a dressing made with Greek yoghurt and homemade olive oil mayonnaise. It's mega creamy, delicious and really easy to make. You can add lots of other ingredients to this salad, it's really versatile. Bell peppers, cherry radishes, cucmber, apples, and hard-boiled eggs are all great as the add-ins. You might not need all the dressing. The leftover can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days.

  • 150 g Plain full-fat Greek yoghurt
  • 3 tbsp Homemade olive oil mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp Freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp Sea alt
  • 1/2 tsp Freshly milled black pepper
  • 2 tbsp Minced fresh dill, plus more for serving
  • 1 tbsp Mince minced fresh parsley, plus more for serving
  • 1 tbsp Chopped fresh chives
  • 300 g Cooked chickpeas, rinsed
  • 1-2 stalk Celery, diced
  • 1 Banana shallot, diced
  1. In a small bowl, combine the yoghurt, mayonnaise, lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper. Whisk until smooth, then stir in the chopped herbs. Set aside.
  2. Place the chickpeas in a large bowl and using a fork, lightly mash about 1/3 of them. Add the diced celery and shallot and toss to combine.
  3. Pour half of the dressing over the salad, toss well, and set aside at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with more dill and parsley and serve.

Looks and sounds so yummy. I usually simply boiled the chickpeas with a little bit of salt and eat it plain. The easiest and lazy way. Lol!

I love chickpea salads. Refreshing and complete. I take it to work often. But not with a dressing like this, I almost always use a vinaigrette.
Good proposal yours, it will be delicious.

I'd eat anything with celery and mayo! And chickpeas are so cheap these days when you buy them canned, really more people should eat them. I watched a video last week on Facebook about some woman that has a chickpea farm in Australia, it is very interesting seeing how they grow them.

It looks delicious, Angie! I have to give it a go but already know Bill won't touch it, he loves potato salad but this would suit me better. Thanks for the recipe!

Fran @ G'day Souffle 27/5/21 17:35

Yum, this really does look like potato salad, but using chick peas instead! I like the addition of the dill and dijon mustard.

I love the look of this. By using yoghurt instead of mayo, the salad is more suitable for summer and, of course, it also has less calories. I like the idea very much.

Raymund 2/6/21 01:26

This sounds really good!

tigerfish 2/6/21 02:39

Fresh herbs make this chickpea salad so much better!

This sounds like a delicious salad with all of those fresh herbs and I'm impressed with your homemade mayo, Angie!
