Cook Time: 5 minutes
Yield: 10 to 12 servings

Ingredients:

 

  • 4 cups canned chickpeas
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ⅓ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp cracked black pepper

  • 2 cups shredded aged cheddar cheese

 

Optional: Add in a cup of green peas and edamame.

What to do:

 

  1. Rinse and slice green cabbage, endives and apples into ¼ inch thin pieces. Shred your aged cheddar cheese. Set these ingredients aside for combining at the end.
  2. Remove chickpeas from cans, and rinse using a strainer.
  3. With a spoonful of coconut oil, add chickpeas and crushed hazelnuts to a stove top pan, on medium-high heat. Stir until chickpeas are warm and hazelnuts are toasted.
  4. Place warm chickpeas and hazelnuts in a large bowl. Add oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Stir in fruit, cabbage, endive, and cheese; toss to coat.

This dish is best served warm and is also a fantastic recipe made ahead of time and chilled for brunch, lunch, or a simple snack on the go!
