Chickpea Waldorf Salad

Serves: 4


  • 1.5 cups (= 1 15-oz. can) cooked chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 apple, chopped
  • 1 cup grapes, halved or quartered
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1 cup sliced celery (~2 stalks)
  • 2-4 Tbs minced red onion, to taste (optional)
  • 2 Tbs Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbs mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbs freshly squeezed lemon juice, or to taste
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Rinse and prep the apple, grapes, celery, and onion; chop walnuts for the salad.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all the salad ingredients: chickpeas, apple, grapes, walnuts, celery, and red onion.
  3. In a small bowl, thoroughly mix the salad dressing ingredients: yogurt, mayo, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
  4. Add the dressing to the salad ingredients and stir well. Taste for seasoning and adjust if necessary.


  • Up the tanginess level with an extra squeeze of lemon.
  • If you have time to marinade the salad in the refrigerator before serving, that will help the flavors blend.
