It’s just too darn hot and muggy to mess around with additional heat sources if I don’t have an excellent reason. Crisp cold salads like this Chickpea Salad become second nature this time of the year. A little chopping and tossing, and I have a healthy side my family loves.

Organic fresh vegetables are my first choice in this salad; however, if you don’t have access to organic farm fresh veggies, no worries; just try to stick to locally grown fresh produce. Why stick to locally grown foods, you ask? The crops are picked at their peak of ripeness/freshness instead of being harvested early to be shipped and distributed to the market.

Place the salad in the fridge for an hour or two, if desired. This salad is so versatile for lunches over mixed baby greens, but it’s also perfect as is. You can also add a cup of cooked Orzo or Ditalini to the Chickpea Salad to make it more hearty if you want.
