Buffalo Chickpea Salad

We wanted to find a good vegetarian football food the other day, and we had a craving for a salad…so we built this Buffalo Blue Cheese salad! From our Buffalo Chickpea Tenders Recipe, we knew that chickpeas would be a great protein component, as they pair well with the iconic sauce. From there, it was a quick easy build to add on other ingredients to enhance flavours and textures…and 15 minutes or so later, we were eating! We highly suggest this for a quick lunch, a side salad (if you shrink it down), or an entree salad!

Time: 15 Minutes


  • Field Greens or Baby Spinach
  • Sweet or Red Onion
  • Avocado
  • Grape Tomatoes
  • Chickpeas
  • Buffalo Sauce
  • Crumbled Blue Cheese
  • Blue Cheese Dressing


  • Drain and rinse your chickpeas. Then, fry them lightly with a little oil in a pan or air fry them to heat and build a hint of crispiness on the outside.
  • As your chickpeas cook, arrange a base layer of greens. Then dice some onion, tomato, and avocado, and add that atop.
  • When your chickpeas are hot, transfer them to a small bowl, and drizzle them with Buffalo sauce. Toss to combine, and then arrange them atop your salad.
  • Crumble some blue cheese over your salad, and then drizzle your dressing on.
  • Plate, devour, and enjoy!
