How to make vegetarian chickpea salad with artichoke hearts

Print this recipe
Do you have a fallback potluck recipe? You know, a dish that you could make with your eyes closed and that you take to every party you’re invited to where you need to bring something to share? The recipe below is my pot luck fallback, and not just because I can make it with my eyes closed, but also because it is so good that people beg me to bring it everywhere.
This salad has a short ingredient list, so it is surprising how varied it is in terms of flavors, textures, and colors. Tender chickpeas mingle with succulent artichoke hearts. A crunch of celery and the bright tang of cherry tomatoes give it life. Lots of fresh basil adds a touch of green and a ton of fresh flavor. And a quick vinaigrette made with white wine vinegar, lemon juice, and olive oil pulls it all together.
