BBQ Chickpea Chopped Salad with BBQ Ranch Dressing
For the BBQ Chickpeas:
15oz can chickpeas drained and rinsed
1/4 cup BBQ sauce (we use "Rib Rack" brand)
Add chickpeas to a saute pan and pour in the 1/4 cup BBQ sauce. Cook on med until the sauce starts bubbling. Reduce to low and cook for 5 minutes until the sauce had reduced to just a coating for the chickpeas. Stir often. Set aside.
1 1/4 cups Starch Solution Mayo. (See recipe for this)
1/3 cup + 1 TBSP plant milk (we used oat milk)
1 TBSP fresh parsley (we used 3/4 tbsp dried)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/8-1/4 tsp dried dill
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
some fresh ground pepper
Mix together with a wisk until well combined. This works perfectly as a regular, oil-free vegan ranch dressing.
To make this a BBQ ranch dressing, add about 2-4 tbsps of BBQ sauce into the bowl and mix well with whisk.
Use to top salad:
Tomatoes, cooked corn, red onions, cilantro, romaine lettuce, BBQ chickpeas
Mix and enjoy
