1 15-oz can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 cloves garlic
3 T. plain Greek yogurt
1 tsp prepared horseradish
1 T. mayonnaise
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce (could use soy sauce)
2 T. grated Parmesan cheese
Juice of 2 lemons
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp salt, plus more as needed
1/4 tsp black pepper, plus more as needed
4 cups coarsely chopped kale, stems removed
4 cups coarsely chopped romaine lettuce
2 T grated Parmesan cheese, plus more as needed
- To make Crispy Chickpeas, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment or foil. Add the chickpeas, oil, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper and toss to coat. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until crispy and golden.
- While the chickpeas are roasting, make the Dressing in a food processor, blender, or with a hand-held immersion blender. Blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper, if desired.
- To make the Salad, combine the kale and 2-3 T of the dressing in a large bowl. Massage the dressing into the kale for about 1 minute or until it softens and reduces the volume. Add the romaine, Parmesan, crispy chickpeas and the desired amount of dressing. Toss to combine and serve with additional dressing and grated Parmesan cheese.
