A Pinteresting Day

So unless you live in a cave or just don’t have an internet connection you’ve probably heard of Pinterest. If you are slightly crafty, enjoy cooking, or just like to look at interesting things I am sure that you are loving Pinterest. I am!

I found this recipe via Pinterest that was posted here on this blog a few weeks ago. Like usual I did not follow the recipe exactly, because I knew I would enjoy it even more with a little tweaking! I made it last week and again yesterday for lunch.
The Tweaked Recipe
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 5 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons of extra light virgin olive oil
  • dried oregano (as much or as little as you like)
  • cracked black pepper (again, the amount is up to you)
  • 2 large tomatoes 
  • 2 extra large cucumbers
  • feta cheese

Drain & rinse your chickpeas & then wait for the foam to go away. Mix up your balsamic vinegar & olive oil and dump your chickpeas into it. Put them in the fridge for 1-5 hours. Basically as much or as little time that you care to wait (at least 30 minutes to get cool).

Slice up your tomatoes & cucumbers the way you like & sprinkle with as much or as little oregano that your taste buds prefer.
If you are making this for a few people then you could just dump the chilled chickpea mixture over the veggies but if it is just you & the salad then I suggest just serving yourself a plate & putting the rest in the fridge for later. So drain the chickpeas but catch all the dressing in a bowl. Add the chickpeas to the veggies & then drizzle the dressing over your individual salad serving. If you pour all the dressing over the veggies the salad will wilt by the end of the day.

Add your cracked black pepper & feta to your yummy salad & enjoy with a nice glass of tea!
Happy Pinteresting!
