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!
