For Pasta Salad
  • 300 g 10.5oz pasta of choice
  • 200 g 1 cup chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup black olives optional
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup avocado diced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes diced
  • 1 small carrot diced
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
For Dressing
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 juice of a lemon

Start by cooking the pasta according to package instructions.
Next, cook the chickpeas. I used the air fryer to cook them but you can also use the oven or a pan. Lightly coat them in olive oil, 1 teaspoon curry, some salt and pepper, then cook until crispy.
Prepare the other ingredients, chop and dice everything.
Once the pasta is done and chilled, add it to a large mixing bowl.
Add all the ingredients to the pasta and mix together.
Make the dressing: in a small bowl, mix all the ingredients together and whisk until combined.
Pour the dressing all over the pasta and mix thoroughly.
Serve with some greens, such as spinach or anything you wish!
