Broccoli, Red Bell Pepper & Chickpea Salad

Vegan MoFo #20 – I spent the day on the beach so I don’t have an elaborate recipe today. However, this is one of my favorite go-to recipes, and it wouldn’t be right not to include it in the Vegan Month of Food initiative.

Broccoli, Red Pepper & Chickpea Salad (vegan, gluten-free)

My mom made this salad often when I was growing up, and now it’s become a staple for me as I make it every other week or so. It’s so easy to make and it tastes delicious. The colors are so vibrant, and the red and green together would make it a great dish to serve at a Christmas potluck.

Update

September 29, 2011 – I made this today and decided to photograph it, since the original photo for this post wasn’t the best, and the parsley was missing. This is still one of my all-time favorite bean salad recipes. And with a 3-ingredient dressing (oil, dijon, garlic), you can’t really get much easier!
