Mediterranean Salad


I love a good lunch salad, but it needs to be both tasty and satisfying. This recipe fits the bill!! The balance of flavours is delicious and the combination of vegetables and chickpeas makes it well balanced. In addition, the chickpeas, tomatoes and extra virgin olive oil add to its anti-inflammatory properties.

Add some diced chicken or avocado for more protein and healthy fat to make it an entree that will keep you going all afternoon!
