Seriously!!! I have no problem eating it straight out of the bowl, though it’s also stellar in sandwich form, and atop a bed of leafy greens and veggies. Hellooooo versatility!

I wanted to eat that Chickpea Salad Sandwich right off of the screen! Your recipes are the best! I do wish, though, that you use a larger and darker font as the gray of the type blends into the white background and it is a struggle for my older eyes to read everything! (Just a suggestion.)
That’s a fantastic suggestion Shirley – thank you! I’ll see if I can tweak it on my end. I’m not the most tech savvy but I’ll try!
Thanks, Jenn, for even considering my suggestion! Thanks for all you do and for the great recipes!
These are some of my favorite things! Really like the way you give options and ideas with each. I make them fairly often, especially the first version of garden veggie one. But I like all of them. Thank you
Super tasty! Even my roommate who dislikes chickpeas kept stealing tastes of this while I was making it, haha. I’m looking forward to adding this to my lunch rotation~ The dill really makes it special. Thanks!!
Haha LOVE IT! I’m so happy to hear y’all are enjoying it and that the chickpea salad made lunch rotation status! Whoo!
