NEW VIDEO: Chickpea + Strawberry Summer Salad (on Steelstacks Live!)

Once again my pals at Steelstacks Live! and Greenleaf Productions let me do some cooking with Jon Lunger.

Jon is a goofball but also just gave one of the sweetest, nicest, most flattering write-ups about me over on the webpage. You can see it here. Bring tissues, it’s so nice. People are lovely, aren’t they?

Annnnd for the video:

CHICKPEA AND STRAWBERRY SUMMER SALAD

  • chickpeas (2 cans, or about 3 cups cooked)
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • olive oil, enough to coat salad lightly
  • about 1/3 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1 bunch scallions/green onions, chopped
  • 1-2 Tbsp. dried mint
  • juice of 2 medium lemons
  • sea salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

Seriously, these are the directions: Add the chickpeas and strawberries to a mixing bowl. Coat lightly in olive oil. Add remaining ingredients and mix. DONE! EASY!

You can garnish with some whole strawberries or parsley sprigs to make it look extra beautiful.
