It's that time of year when fresh herbs are growing and everyone is coming out of hibernation. I love this combination of lime, cilantro and Fire Cider; it's tangy and bright and pairs really well with chickpeas. Grow your own cilantro or pick some up at your farmers market and then give this quick and easy recipe a try.
- 4 ounces cilantro (I didn't measure, I just used the whole big bunch, more is more!)
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 2 tablespoons Fire Cider, any variety- Unsweetened, African Bronze or Original are all delicious!
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 to 2 cloves garlic
- 2 teaspoons mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon salt or more to taste
- Freshly cracked black pepper to taste
Blend all the above ingredients in a food processor or using an immersion blender. Taste and adjust to your liking, add more of any of the above ingredients. The dressing is now done, use it on anything you like! But definitely try it on chickpeas:
- 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained well
- 1/3 cup red onion, diced
- Fire Cider Cilantro Dressing, to preference
Mix the chickpeas with the diced red onion. Add in a healthy dose of dressing to cover everything really, extra well.
Then toss with greens and sprouts.
Save leftover dressing and chickpeas for the next day. They'll be even more flavorful!
