Meal Prep, Salad, Side Dish
Buffalo Chickpea Salad is a spicy chickpea salad with all the flavors of buffalo wings, only meatless, perfect for lunch!
(drained and rinsed (or 1 1/2 cups cooked))
(divided (1 large carrots))
(divided (about 1 large stalks), plus celery leaves for garnish)
Frank’s Red Hot Original
plain Greek yogurt
plus 1/2 tsp lemon juice
crumbled blue cheese
Romaine or Bibb leaves for serving
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil.
Once it begins to shimmer, add the chickpeas, spreading them in a single layer, and let cook undisturbed for 1 to 2 minutes, or until they brown a bit.
Stir, add the garlic and salt, and cook for a minute more.
Transfer the chickpeas to a large bowl and add 1/4 cup carrots and 1/4 cup celery.
Fold in the Frank’s, yogurt, 1 Tbsp lemon juice, and tahini; stir gently until combined.
In a separate bowl, toss the remaining diced celery and carrots with the remaining 1/2 tsp lemon juice and set aside.
To serve the chickpeas, top them with blue cheese (if using), the reserved celery and carrots, and a big handful of celery leaves. Scoop the salad onto a lettuce leaf, wrap, and dig in.
