Chickpea & Red Onion Salad Recipe (in 3 easy steps!)
Here are the simply, easy instructions for making this fresh and tasty garbanzo bean salad. Start by chopping or dicing any ingredients as required.
Step 1: Soak raw red onion
After chopping the red onion, we recommend soaking it in water. Soaking raw onions removes some of the bitterness and makes them sweeter. If you are crunched for time (or prefer your onions spicy), you can skip this step.
Step 2: Combine all ingredients for salad
Toss together ingredients to combine.
Step 3: Make dressing and toss to coat.
Combine broth, lemon juice, salt, and sweetener, then pour over salad. Stir to coat.
