I’m hanging on to Summer until the very end! It’s too short! I also love how we tend to crave simpler food dishes during the summer. I’m loving cold chickpea and herb salads these during these summer days. Simple and healthy! I’ll be sharing one of my latest simple summer salads in today’s post. A few people messaged me asking for the recipe so I’ll just post it here for everyone. It’s so super easy and takes very little time to make.
Chickpea & Herb Summer Salad
1 can of Chickpeas
1 cup of parsley, chopped
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes cut in half
1 tbsp hemp hearts
1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
Drizzle of Olive oil
Salt & Pepper
1 tbsp of minced garlic or you can use garlic powder as an alternative
1 bell pepper, chopped
2 cups of Fresh Spinach
Drain and rinse your chickpeas
Add them into a large bowl
Chop up your parsley, garlic, tomatoes and bell pepper
Toss the chopped ingredients into the bowl except the parsley
Toss in the Apple Cider Vinegar and drizzle in some olive oil as well.
Mix the ingredients well
Add in the parsley and fresh spinach to the salad
Season your salad with Salt and Pepper
Give the salad another toss
Sprinkle the hemp heats onto the salad and serve!
* This Salad can be made ahead and stored in the fridge. The longer it sits in the fridge the better it tastes. I suggest you only add the spinach in before serving however. It will get too wilted otherwise. I add my spinach in the morning before leaving for work if I’m taking it for lunch. Adjust the dressing measurements to your desire. If your oil free you can totally skip it in this recipe. I’ve eaten it oil free many times and it’s still great. *
Have a wonderful day everyone!
