Cilantro-Lime Chickpea Salad Recipe

Citrus & Cilantro Chickpea Salad

Summer may be gone, but that doesn’t mean we have to forgo the flavors!

 

This salad is super simple (think 15 minute dinner), delicious, and best of all, its fresh flavors will help you relive all of that summer magic. The high fiber (66% of your recommended daily value!) and high protein (almost 19 grams!) content makes it a meal in itself. It also has loads of heart-healthy fat from the avocado, and is chock full of veggie goodness. What’s not to love?!

 

Test this salad out for your family’s next Meatless Monday meal, or bring it along as a side dish for your next potluck. It’s sure to be a hit no matter the audience!
