I love a big salad loaded with all the things- a little crunch with every bite.. mmmm. I’m most definitely an “all toppings” kinda gal no matter what it’s pertaining to. More is more!
This chopped mediterranean chickpea salad is not only easy to throw together, it’s super healthy and SO delicious. If you are serving to a group, simply put everything but the arugula, feta cheese, and dressing in a large bowl. When you are ready to serve, add arugula, feta, and dressing, and toss it up!
You could also add hearts of palm because yum. Also an option to add grilled chicken or shrimp, or protein of choice. There are no rules here, just one big party in a bowl. I hope you love love love!Print
