By the way, it’s super easy to make and goes really nicely with almost anything. The best part about this salad is that my hubby, who has Celiac disease, can safely eat it and he loves it.

So if you’re a gluten-free-er this is another great recipe to add variety to what can seem a very limited and boring menu!

(I’m not a doctor and ingredients will vary with brands so as always if you’re a celiac sufferer CHECK THE INGREDIENTS on your can of chickpeas and your bag of corn!

Also, I’m working on great, simple, recipes that are celiac friendly so follow my Facebook page for the best ones. And because I love quick and simple, I’m aiming at creating very basic but delicious recipes that will require very few ingredients.

Anyway, back to the awesome recipe…

*There’s a secret that makes this salad so full of flavor and more-ish!*

And it’s super simple! Paying attention?

I lightly fry (separately to each other) the chickpeas and the sweet corn.

This brings out the flavor of both and the reason I do it separately is to keep the flavors from mixing so that with every bite of salad there is a delicious medley of three different flavors.

Cool fresh carrot, warm buttery sweetcorn, and then the smooth creaminess of the chickpeas. SO so good. Just saying.
