Chickpea salad with cottage cheese and cucumbers

Chickpea and cucumber salad

The chickpea salad with ricotta and cucumber, garnished with cherry tomatoes, is an alternative to the usual rice salad.

The chickpea salad with ricotta and cucumbers is an absolutely summery and fresh dish, even if the chickpeas recall a bit the flavor of winter, when in the evening you warm up with a warm plate of legumes . Nothing could be more wrong: this salad, which must be served strictly cold, brings you summer on your plate, already inviting with its bright colors: the yellow of the chickpeas, the green of the cucumbers and the red of the fresh tomatoes.

Flavored with bay leaves and extra virgin olive oil , this dish is absolutely healthy, natural and also suitable for those who follow a vegetarian diet (not vegan: there is ricotta).
Try it, even without ricotta !!!!
