Mango and Warm Chickpea Salad

I came across a salad recipe on a twitter post today that had chickpeas and mangoes in it, which seemed like a perfect dinner tonight, especially since I had some leftover cooked chick peas from my hummus yesterday.  I went back to try to find the post at dinner, but I couldn’t find it for the life of me, so decided to improvise.

Ingredients

    • 1 cup chick peas, cooked
    • 1/2 tsp cumin
    • 1/4 tsp dry mustard seeds
    • 1/4 tsp turmeric
    • 1/4 tsp white pepper
    • 1 mango, cut into small cubes
    • 1 stalk green garlic
    • 2 green onions
    • 1 lime, juiced
    • arugula (or any one of your favourite salad greens – I prefer arugula because of its peppery nature)

Instructions

      1. In a bit of olive oil, toast the spices and add the chick peas until they are fully coated and warmed through.
      2. Add the juice from half a lime.
      3. In a small bowl, mix the mango, green garlic, green onions and the remaining lime juice. On a bed of arugula, add the chick peas and mango mixture.

I love the combination of warm ingredients on arugula – I’ve also made a salad with roasted potatoes coated in a mustard dressing on a bed of arugula that is absolutely deelish.
