Chickpea Detox Salad


This crunchy salad is one of Joy McCarthy's favourites. It's so quick and easy to make and keeps in the fridge for at least a week. The fiber and phytonutrients make this an ideal detox meal. Chickpeas are a natural appetite suppressant too!



1 can Garbanzo Beans (Chickpeas) , drained and rinsed
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
5 stalks celery, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 sweet red pepper, cut into bit sized pieces
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 or 2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper


1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl; toss well. Let sit for an hour so the flavors can mingle.
