This Curried Potato Salad With Chickpeas & Tomatoes is a healthier version of potato salad. There is no added mayo, and the salad is creamy and delicious, just the way we love it!

To make this salad more flavourful than the classic potato salad, I used fresh mint, basil, cilantro, garlic, lime juice and a pinch of curry powder. The creaminess comes from full-fat Greek yogurt. I am not a lover of mayonnaise, so I try to avoid it as much as possible in my recipes.

To add protein to this beautiful curried potato salad, I added chickpeas, also called garbanzo beans. The chickpeas made the salad heartier and added interesting textures. Another healthy ingredient in this salad is the tomato. The tomato adds flavour and keeps the salad juicy and soooo good!

But there is more! I wanted to add freshness to the salad beside the tomato. For me, fresh herbs are always best in salads. In this curried potato salad, I added fresh cilantro, fresh basil and fresh mint. Honestly, the combo of these three herbs is outstanding. If you like a bit of heat, add thinly sliced fresh hot chili peppers.

This salad is not your typical potato salad, and with the summer barbecues just around the corner, we can never have enough delicious potato salad recipes. If you are not that crazy about the curry flavour, skip the curry powder and add Worcestershire sauce or mustard. The salad will be just as delicious!

Are you thinking of barbecues? Then you are probably thinking salads 🙂 Here is a list of our most delicious salad recipes for inspirations. The good thing about salads you can change up the ingredients and still come up with a stunning salad.
