Chickpea salad with pear and lemon
Healthy salad with lots of veggies and refreshing dressing
After the holidays, a healthy, yet delicious and satisfying salad is just what you need. With this recipe idea, you can whip up a great light lunch or perfect appetizer in minutes. The chickpeas are a great source of protein. The pear adds sweetness, while the zucchini and cucumber add crunch. The avocado provides healthy fats and adds creaminess. Topped off with spices like Ras el Hanout and cayenne pepper, this chickpea salad becomes irresistible! What I particularly like is that the different flavors become one and blend together, but with each bite another ingredient stands out. As I've said before with other dishes, salad doesn't have to be boring at all, with seasoning it becomes a great meal with many nutrients!
The ingredients are for two larger servings or 4 servings as an appetizer. Enjoy!
