Tomato Cucumber Salad with Chickpeas & Mint

Tomato cucumber salad is a summer-fresh classic side dish and this simple recipe is just that. With the addition of some protein rich chickpeas, this delicious salad can also be a complete lunch all on its own.

Mint is always in profusion in the small herb garden just outside my kitchen door during the summer, so I chose some of it to add a bright fresh note to the salad. Practically any fresh herb that you like or have on hand will do as a substitute though; basil, chives, oregano, tarragon or oregano would all be great choices.

If you want to add a little salty element to the salad, especially of serving it as an easy lunch dish, a sprinkle of feta cheese when serving is also good.

Any suggestions for an alternative to mint? Could you sub fresh oregano or cilantro or something?

This is a lovely salad with a refreshing dressing for BBQ. I removed the tomato and cucumber seeds before tossing them in.

Really nice salad as a lunch or with a BBQ. Very refreshing and great flavor with the mint. I made it according to the recipe and it was a big hit. A definite "make again". Great summer salad. Thanks!!

Very good but far too sweet with 3 tbsp of honey. Half a tbsp is sufficient. Will make again with adjustment.
