This tasty Roasted Broccoli Chickpea Arugula Salad is tossed with a healthy homemade lemon dressing and ready to rock your salad game!
The sheer number of requests I get for new salad recipes makes me happy dance all over the dang place.
You guys… Keep asking! Not only will I keep delivering, but my pants will also fit better – woot! If that’s not a win win I don’t know what is. As long as you’ll tolerate my antics, I’ll channel my inner Oprah and make sure y’all are swimming in salad recipes.
You get a salad and YOU get a salad!
Everybody’s getting salads!
I promise I’ll still pencil in some comfort food for ya too because, duh, cheese. Today we’re swapping cheese for chickpeas and my dairy-obsessed self didn’t miss it one bit. Seriously!
I whipped up this gorgeous green salad as a post-workout lunch and it totally hit the spot!
After an hour jumping around like a coffee-drunk monkey at Orangetheory, I’m straight up ravenous. I try to refuel with clean, healthy food packed with protein and fiber, otherwise I’m hungry again in 30 minutes… then again 30 minutes after that… It’s a vicious nonstop hunger cycle I’m working crazy hard to break.
This is totally lunch/dinner salad territory, as the combination of crispy chickpeas and broccoli will give you a pretty hefty serving of filling fiber and protein.
I should probably confess that while this salad is sized for 2 normal servings and 4 small side dish sized servings, I ate the entire thing in a sitting.
What? I’m the hungriest of hippos…
