50 Simple Salads: Tapas-Inpired Chickpea Salad

Similar to Mark Bittman’s 101 Simple Summer Salads, the Food Network Magazine published 50 Simple Salads in their most recent issue as a mini pullout booklet.

I thought the Chickpea Tapas recipe would accompany the skirt steak nicely:

“Mix chickpeas, capers and green olives with chopped chorizo, celery, red onion, parsley and cilantro. Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper; top with manchego.”

I used shaved manchego — utilizing a vegetable peeler to make thin slices.  I also added a splash of red wine vinegar.  Don’t forget to drain and rinse the chickpeas.
