What’s the most important element of a summer salad? I say deliciousness, but aside from that its convenience. We all have busy lives running here and there whether to teach Sunday school or drive kids around, or even the regular everyday things like going shopping or cleaning. There’s no reason to have to sacrifice flavor when it comes to meals, however. That’s why I look for recipes like this simple summer chickpea salad. It can be thrown together in a pinch and will really knock the socks off of you or anyone else who is lucky enough to have a bowl.
Consider this combo of chickpeas, fresh cherry tomatoes, basil and feta cheese all swimming around in a honey garlic dressing that has a bit of a kick from the cayenne. Honestly this is all I could ever ask for in a salad and when I made it, I ate it for a week straight.
