Green Pea and Chickpea Salad with Basil Vinaigrette

Green Pea and Chickpea Salad with Basil Vinaigrette


  • 2 cups of frozen green peas
  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • 10 raw cashews
  • 23 tablespoons pine nuts
  • 10 fresh basil leaves
  • 5 fresh mint leaves
  • 1/3 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons vegan mayo
  • 1/2 lime or 1/3 lemon
  • 1/2 inch scallion, minced
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt and pepper


Boil the frozen peas for 5 minutes, then drench in cold water. Combine all the ingredients for the vinaigrette, except 5 cashews, in a mini blender or food processor. Blend until you get a good creamy consistency. Add the cashews and pulse a few times to get some nice chunks. Combine the drained chickpeas and green peas in a bowl. Add vinaigrette and mix. You can sprinkle some pine nuts or pair this salad with some roasted veggies. Bon appétit!
