Mediterranean Chickpea Salad

**This recipe was featured as part of our 2017 New Release Wine & Food Pairings.**

Suggested Wines

  • Sauvignon Blanc (Dry White)

Sauvignon Blanc can be a tricky food pairing. Those from cool climates (such as Michigan) tend to exhibit more citrus fruit character. The lemon dressing helps to bridge the flavors between the wine and food.

Ingredients

  • 28 ounces chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 sweet red bell pepper, roasted
  • ½ medium red onion
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • Juice and zest of 1 fresh lemon
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

 Directions

  1. Mix all ingredients (except salt and pepper) together in a large bowl. Refrigerate 24 hours to let the flavors meld together.
  2. Add salt and pepper to taste before serving.
