Healthy Chickpea Salad Recipe

healthy chickpea salad recipe

Last Sunday I was standing in front of our refrigerator trying to think of something I can make ahead to prep my lunches for the week.  I usually do chicken and veggies but after a while that can get pretty boring.  I am not a huge sandwich person and was over the basic salads.

So I literally pulled some stuff out of my refrigerator and started putting some ingredients together.  I ended up making the yummiest chickpea salad.  It’s easy, quick to put together and everything is fresh. It lasts up to about 4 days but after that it may start to get soggy.

Even the dressing is homemade!

Here is how to make the chickpea salad recipe:
