This is a beauty! AmIRight?
I whipped up this salad as a side dish to go along with my delicious Mozzarella Chicken Marinara. Lately, I’ve been trying to eat healthier dinners and avoid high carbs.
It was SO good, that I made it again for lunch the next day!
I get really excited when I get any opportunity to use my big wood salad bowl! It was a wedding gift, and perfect for creating a big salad.
For this recipe, I added cucumbers, black olives, chickpeas, mini heirloom tomatoes, crumbled feta and a shallot.
Did you know chickpeas are the same thing as garbanzo beans?
I sure didn’t! I rarely use them. So, there I am standing in the bean aisle of the grocery store. After rubbing my chin in confusion for a what seemed like forever, a nice lady eventually came along and asked me what I was looking for. She told me about this little fact of bean history. Who knew?
Apparently, not me! Ha!
The dressing is simply olive oil and lemon juice mixed with a little salt and pepper.
All the ingredients have so much flavor already, that you don’t want the dressing to be heavy.
