Recipe

I love the idea of salad for lunch but unless I add a protein source I find myself hungry just a few hours later. However there are lots of protein sources besides meat and roasted chickpeas are one of my favorites. Roasting canned chickpeas creates a deeper flavor and add a nice crispy element to the salad. Paired with kale, cucumber, and mango - this is one delicious salad.
