I am a huge fan of no-cook lunches and dinners in the summer, and this salad is the perfect meal for the heat.  This vegetarian chopped chickpea salad is loaded with fresh chopped lettuce (you can use iceberg or Romaine), tasty chickpeas, and topped with loads of cheese.
 
This salad is great for vegetarian meal prep lunches during the week. I prepped a whole week’s worth and was able to enjoy it while working from home.  After I made the chickpeas, I portioned them into airtight containers, stored them in the fridge, and was able to grab one at lunchtime and eat.
 

This Chopped Salad with Chickpeas Is:

  • Bright
  • Crunchy
  • Satisfying
  • Protein-packed
  • Crisp
  • Tangy
  • Vegetarian and so good!
