Scott Phillips

Crunchy roasted chickpeas add a surprising element to this simple salad, which pairs well with both Middle Eastern and Latin American flavors.


  • 1 15-oz. can chickpeas, drained
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 ripe Hass avocado
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh lime juice, more to taste
  • 2 oz. feta, finely crumbled
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced

    I made this together with the Harissa Yogurt Baked Chicken Thighs. The roasted chickpeas have a really nice crunch, and the combination with avocado and feta is great. We loved it!
