Chickpea and Raw Vegetable Salad

2

WAIT! KEEP READING! I know… I said… RAW and VEGETABLE.  I feel like I’ve led you on with the last post about white chocolate bark and now I’m smacking you in the face with a raw vegetable salad.  It’s so delicious though.  And let’s be real, you and me both know we need more veg in our lives and this is straight up wellness in a bowl.  I made a big pile of this treat and kept it in the fridge for a few days. That way, every time I reached for a snack I wasn’t having cheese and crackers for the 2398523 time that week.

Really, it’s your world with how you want this to go down (mine was inspired from here).

I combined:

2 cans of drained and rinsed chickpeas

0.5  cups of halved cherry tomatoes

Half of a red pepper finely diced

Half of a yellow pepper finely diced

One bunch of scallions sliced

0.25 sliced kalamata olives

Small bunch of parsley chopped

2 cloves garlic minced

I then poured  the juice of a 1.5 lemons over the vegetables as well as a drizzle of olive oil.  Season with salt /pep.  I served with a piece of crispy salmon.
