Notes

  • To make this salad with chickpeas, the ideal is to use dried chickpeas and cook them at home. But you can also use canned cooked chickpeas, if you wish. In my case, I always recommend the first option because the taste, texture and final result, in my humble opinion, is better.
  • In my case I have used the Pedrosillano chickpea variety, which has a smaller caliber. But feel free to use the variety you like the most.
  • It is important and necessary to soak the chickpeas overnight to soften them and reduce cooking time. In addition, it allows the enzyme activity to be activated, making them much easier to digest.
  • Calculating the exact cooking time of legumes is complicated because it depends on many factors: variety, freshness, soaking time, hardness of the water…. The best way to know if they are already cooked is to taste them. The time can be between 60-90 minutes and, in pressure cooker, around 20-25 minutes.
  • You can accompany the salad with the ingredients you like the most. In my case I have left you the way in which I usually prepare it at home, but you can add what you consider: tuna, cucumber, anchovies, sweet corn….
  • The ideal is to serve it cold.
