Chickpea Salad with a Creamy Dressing

The typical coleslaw is not my favorite among salads. Raw cabbage and the one dimensional texture, it is alright but I definitely do not go for seconds. My mom makes this coleslaw with a mixture of different vegetables. There is protein from the chickpeas, freshness from the cucumber and tomatoes, the crispness of the red onion and cabbage, sweetness from the craisins and the creamy dressing just brings it all together.

The dressing is the same one I used for my Broccoli Slaw so if you click on the dressing link it will take you to that recipe.

In reality you can substitute these vegetables with others that you prefer. The flavour profile is crunchy, sweet and creamy. For example, you can substitute the craisins with apples. So go nuts!
