Portuguese Chickpea Salad
Salada de Grao de Bico is one of those Portuguese recipes that everyone’s family makes just a little bit different. It is a simple chickpea salad tossed with herbs, vegetables, and a simple mixture of oil and vinegar. I love this simple side dish so today I’m sharing with you my version of Portuguese Chickpea Salad made with red bell peppers, onions, garlic, parsley, and of course, chickpeas.

How to Make Salada de Grao de Bico – Portuguese Chickpea Salad
- In a large bowl add drained and rinsed chickpeas, diced onions, diced red bell peppers, finely minced garlic, and finely minced parsley.

That’s a super simple chickpea salad right? It’s great for potlucks, or a quick, healthy, lunch or dinner. In fact, lots of people add tuna to it to make into a complete meal. Like I said every Portuguese family has their own way of making chickpea salad so feel free to play around with it a little. I have seen basil used instead of parsley, and tomatoes used instead of bell peppers. Despite all of the minor differences in this recipe one thing every one of my Portuguese friends agreed on is, it’s delicious!
