This nutritious, textured salad is high in fiber and protein. With red peppers in the mix, it's also packed with vitamin C.


  • 2 15-ounce cans chickpeas (also called garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
  • 1 medium cucumber, chopped
  • 1 sweet red pepper, cored, seeded, and chopped
  • 2 ears (about 1 cup) fresh, raw corn , kernels sliced off cob
  • 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic-chili paste



1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Gently toss to combine. Makes approximately 6 cups in total.
Tip: Round out the meal with some whole-wheat pita bread (simply spoon the salad into a half-pocket) and a dessert of juicy watermelon wedges.
