Chickpea Summer Salad – A complete meal in a salad! So healthy and so delicious!

Have you ever heard of one dish meals? Well this delicious salad is just that! One whole meal in just one beautiful salad. When you are down to the wire and just don’t have a lot of time this salad is simply perfect!

It’s so healthy for you too! The chickpeas are all the protein and fiber that you need and there are all kinds of glorious veggies to help you feel great. You can eat just this salad and be totally satisfied or, if you aren’t in quite as big a rush, you can add some Butter Bread or a Prune Muffin. With summer and picnics coming you can easily serve this with a Baked Chicken Sandwich, some Grilled Zucchini or a Quick and Classy Chicken Salad Sandwich.

The best part is that you can really use any veggies you have on hand! Try some carrots, celery, artichokes and black olives if you have them in your pantry too. Yum! Don’t you just love diverse recipes?!
