Summer is in full swing, and we are enjoying all the fresh garden produce we can! This bright and flavorful spinach chickpea salad is the perfect dish welcome in the summer months. Made with garden fresh tomatoes and a 5-minute vinaigrette dressing, this good-for-you chickpea spinach salad is bursting with flavor.
 
This year we grew a few varieties of tomatoes – all of which are booming in the garden right now!  We grew red super snack tomatoes, and yellow golden currant tomatoes which are both producing like crazy! Even if tomatoes aren’t in season, I add cherry tomatoes to salads, which can be sweeter and more flavorful than the larger tomatoes in the winter.
