Orange Chickpea Salad

Packed with vitamins, fiber, and most importantly delicious flavor, this colorful and refreshing salad is definitely worth a try!

Ingredients (1 serving):
150 g chickpeas (drained from a can) or 75 g dried chickpeas
150 g vegetables (cucumber, tomato, white onion)
1 orange
2 TBsp. olive oil
1 TBsp. balsamic vinegar
1 garlic clove
Salt and pepper

Preparation:
If using dried chickpeas, soak the chickpeas in cold water overnight. Drain, add new water and cook for 20 minutes. Grate the cucumber, sprinkle with salt and place in a sieve to drain the excess water. Slice the orange in half and then juice one half. Peel the second half and cut into cubes. Make a marinade by adding the orange juice with vinegar, salt and pepper. Cut the onion into thin slices and chop the tomato. Peel and chop the garlic and then sauté in a pan on low heat with the sliced onions. Deglaze the pan using the prepared marinade to create a sauce and set aside. Drain the chickpeas and the cucumber pulp and then mix with the tomatoes. Finally add the sauce, mix well, and enjoy!
