Quinoa and Chickpea Salad Recipe


  • 2 cups arugula (you can change this to any other leafy green)
  • 2 cups quinoa (cooked)
  • 3-4 radishes, sliced
  • ½ a cup of drained and rinsed chickpeas
  • ¼ a cup of chopped walnuts
  • ½ a cup of chives
  • ¼ a cup of chopped dried tomatoes (sun dried tomatoes)
  • ¼ a cup of basil
  • ¼ a cup of chopped feta cheese (you may also use Salata or Cotija cheese)
  • Pepper and salt to taste
  • For the lemon and walnut oil ( La tourangel walnut oil is just amazing !) dressing, you will need
  • 1 minced clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of honey, agave or rice syrup
  • 2 tablespoonfuls of walnut oil
I highly recommend YS Organic Pure Honey or Tabasco Mcilhenny Pure Honey when using honey especially for weight loss and health purposes.


Cook and rinse the quinoa

How to cook perfect fluffy and tasty quinoa

Follow the ratio of 2:1 to cook one cup of quinoa for approximately 20 minutes. To make it less bitter, rinse thoroughly in a mesh strainer. 
Season with ¼ teaspoon of salt for each cup of quinoa for added taste then add spices such as garlic, rosemary, and black
In a bowl, whisk the dressing ingredients together.
Prepare and chop the rest of your vegetables and herbs.

In a large bowl, place the quinoa, arugula and minced garlic (the arugula will wilt slightly).

Combine all the other vegetables into the large bowl then pour your dressing on top when done. Toss and season with salt pepper and salt. You may also wish to add walnut oil or shaved parmesan.
