This week the weather is beginning to warm up in a hurry, even with all that wind! One way to combat the heat this coming summer is with a simple, but very tasty, salad. Chickpeas have protein and carbohydrates to give you energy and keep you going, and the rainbow of veggies taste great!
Chili Lime Chickpea Salad is easy to make: just dice up any and all veggies you’d like and stir everything together with your freshly made salad dressing. There you go!
This salad is tastes better the next day, so make it ahead and take it for lunch all week; consider adding another protein food to round out your lunch, like a can of tuna or salmon, or slices of grilled chicken. It’s also great to take on a picnic or to a backyard barbecue, because it pairs with so many other foods! Its great with grilled fish, hamburgers, fajitas, and many other things!
This is a no-rules recipe too! What veggies do you have in your fridge or garden? Add them! Prefer tomatoes over green peppers? Feel free to switch it up!
