This Honey Mustard Chickpea Salad is what delicious and heart-healthy food is all about. We´re talking a ton of great flavors, simple ingredients and all done in just 10 minutes. Serve this salad as a starter or even as a main course. Either way, it pairs perfectly next to a crunchy baguette.

Honey Mustard Chickpea Salad
To make this recipe I used canned chickpeas, just to make things quicker and easier. Of course, you can also use dried chickpeas if you like. Just soak them in plenty of water overnight and then simmer the following day for 1 to 2 hours or until tender.

Honey Mustard Chickpea Salad
What really flavors this salad is the honey mustard dressing. Important to use a great olive oil to make the dressing, as it´s the base fat of the dressing and what really brings the entire dish together.

    One of the commenters here has made pejorative claims about olive oil which would be hard to justify. It is predominantly an unsaturated fat; the saturated fat content is only about 14%, i.e., 1/7. Overall it is antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, and seen as a healthy ingredient in a Mediterranean-style diet. This opinion is shared in many sources. It contains vitamins K and E, both useful in a balanced diet, as well as traces of other nutritious minerals. If you want to use oil with less saturated content, simply substitute safflower, sunflower, etc.
