Warm Chickpea Salad with Shallots & Red Wine Vinaigrette



Recipe by: Adapted from Orangette, who adapted it from The Splendid Table Weeknight Kitchen, which in turn excerpted from Fresh Food Fast: Delicious, Seasonal Vegetarian Meals in Under an Hour
Yield: 4 servings

Molly from Orangette numbers this among her “simple and unsexy” winter staples, which makes me laugh. I guess chickpeas can’t be sexy, but this warm salad is divine and satisfying in a way that’s hard to describe — you just have to make it! It’s my absolutely favorite salad in the world, sexy or not.

Ingredients:
1 large shallot, thinly sliced
3 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste
2 (15-ounce) cans chickpeas, drained
1 large carrot, coarsely grated
1/2 cup flat-leaf (Italian) parsley leaves, chopped
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper

Directions:
Combine shallot, vinegar, minced garlic, and salt in a large bowl and set it aside to mellow for around 10 minutes while you complete the rest of the recipe. Boil water in a medium saucepan over high heat and add chickpeas. Boil them for 2 minutes and drain. Add the carrot, parsley, olive oil, and chickpeas to the shallot mixture and toss well. Taste and season as needed. Serve immediately.
