This refreshing salad mixes crunchy cucumber and radishes, red onion slivers and chewy chickpeas in a tart cumin-spiked lemon dressing.

  1. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  3. 1 garlic clove, minced
  4. 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  5. 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  6. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  7. One 19-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  8. 1 pound seedless European or Kirby cucumbers, thinly sliced crosswise
  9. 6 large red radishes, thinly sliced
  10. 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  11. 1/4 cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  1. In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, lemon zest and cumin and season with salt and pepper. Add the chickpeas and let marinate for at least 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Just before serving, stir in the cucumbers, radishes, onion and parsley and season with salt and pepper.
Make Ahead The chickpeas can be refrigerated overnight in the dressing; add the vegetables just before serving.
