Chickpea & Stuff Salad

Hey guys!

I feel like I have been holding out with you guys on this recipe!  Although I usually only make it when the sun starts shining!!  Because it’s a perfect lunch to pack up an go!!  Plus it get’s better the longer it sits…

Introducing my Chickpea & Stuff Salad.

DSC_1233 Dice up whatever veggies you have… I used tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, carrots.  Add in 1 clove of finely minced garlic, a handful of sunflower seeds and a can of rinsed chickpeas!!

DSC_1236 Then add spices – I used Zatar (from my exchange with Robyn)… some salt and pepper.   Chop up as much fresh herbs as possible and toss in… I used parsley! (YUM)  Then drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar!!

DSC_1238 I topped mine with some home grown peppery sprouts!  I serve this with crackers – Mary’s are my fav!!

Green onions, artichoke hearts, chopped olives or sundried tomatoes would make this even better!!

Do you make any salad’s like this??  Remember the longer it sits the better!!

Gotta keep this short today. 

I will be back tomorrow after my trial run with a Macaroni and Cheeze dinner!   FUN!!

Ciao,

Jess

  8. I LOVE chickpea salads like this. They are perfect for using up all the leftover veggies you've got lying around and they are ALWAYS delicious. Aren't chickpeas the best?
