Chickpea Salad

Chickpea Salad

Here’s a salad that I’ve been making all summer. It really can have anything on it but lately I’ve been using an ingredient that adds more protein to the salad to keep me going a little big longer: canned chickpeas.

Ingredients:

salad mix or spinach
1 boiled egg, sliced
1 or 2 tbsp canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
chopped onion or cucumber
sliced tomato
kalamata olives (pitted, of course)
grated parmesean cheese

dressing: extra virgin olive oil (evoo) and balsamic vinegar

Another variation I do of this salad would be without the olives and instead I add a spoonful of strained sliced beets and feta cheese.
