Chick Pea Salad with Lemon-Mint Vinaigrette

Mary Gelfond


This is a good refreshing salad. The lemon vinaigrette is slightly tangy. I like to use feta with herbs, though you can use your favorite crumbled feta. The parsley can be fresh or dried; however I prefer fresh mint in this recipe. There are several varieties of mint and all of them are good in this recipe, though each will add their own distinctive flavor.
