What's in your Lunchbox?

On Monday this salad will be in my lunchbox.

This is a very nice and quick make-ahead salad. It holds well and goes together quickly. It's even faster if you ask your deli man to slice your cheese and salami nice and thick - then all you need to do is cube it and toss it in with the beans.

Chickpea Deli Salad
  • 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • Handful of parsley, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1/2 of a large red pepper, chopped
  • 2 -3 scallions, sliced thin
  • 1 thick slice of deli provolone, cubed
  • 2 thick slices of deli salami, cubed
  • vinaigrette
Toss everything but the dressing together in a medium bowl. Add as much vinaigrette as you think is needed - probably about 1/4 cup. Toss everything in the dressing. Add more to taste. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serves 2.

This is a very basic formula - use different types of bean, cheese, vegetable and/or cold cut. You can make it more chopped salad-like by putting everything over chopped romaine.
