Having chickpeas on hand for this salad is easy to do. To learn how to can your own chickpeas step by step, be sure and visit my page Canning Chickpeas.

This Chickpeas Salad with Pesto and Feta is very easy to make, especially if you have canned your chickpeas yourself. When canning chickpeas, I have found they create a thick jelly-like starch around them that I rinse off for this salad. However, this is a great thickening agent if you are making Hummus.


For a step-by-step guide on how to can your own chickpeas, be sure and visit my post, Canning Chickpeas. Canning chickpeas yourself yields a superior product and opens the door to creating unique flavors not found in common grocery store cans of chickpeas.

When I make my Basil and Parsley Pesto I usually triple the batch and then freeze the pesto in ice cube trays. After 24 hours, I will pop them out of the trays and place them into a large ziplock bag. That way, I have fresh pesto whenever I want it all winter long.
