This yummy, easy salad is a cross between a vegetarian ‘chicken’ salad, and a Western relation of the North Indian street food chana chaat, that combines chickpeas with yogurt and spices among other things....

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 16-ounce cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • ½ cup chopped celery
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • salt and pepper to taste

If you want to add a taste of South Asia, drizzle a little sour tamarind sauce over it.
