Chickpea Salad

Chickpeas are the bee’s knees!

Originating in the middle-east, there are remnants of chickpeas being up to 7500 years old. They are indeed an oldie but a goodie!



This salad is a great one to make in large quantities to keep in your fridge for the week. Use it as a side dish or your main entree and add some grilled chicken or salmon on top to pack more protein! Learn different protein to add to your diet: Diversifying Your Protein.
