  • 8 oz chickpea rotini pasta
  • 1 can chickpeas or garbanzo beans
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes sliced
  • 2 mini cucumbers chopped small
  • 1/2 cup sliced black olives
  • 1/3 cup red onions diced


  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup fresh parsley
  • 2 lemon juiced
  • 1 tsp country or dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Cook chickpea rotini pasta according to package instructions. For pasta salads I always recommend to cook pasta al dente. Drain, rinse and set aside.
  • Meanwhile chop the veggies. Rinse canned chickpeas. Add everything to a large bowl and toss in the chickpea pasta.
  • In a small bowl stir together the dressing. Feel free to add other spices or fresh herbs such as oregano or basil.
  • Give pasta salad a good stir and serve. If you do not have dairy allergies you're welcome to add feta cheese.
