Each bite of this mint lemonade chickpea salad is like a drop of sunshine for your taste buds. Mint and lemon are no flavor strangers, and although both can be quite bold, they work wonderfully together, especially in this dressing.

Recipe from Ashley Madden from Rise Shine Cook

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas, or 1 ¼ (15-ounce) cans, drained, rinsed, and cooled to room temperature

Good! Don’t fudge on anything. Lemon is squeezed, spinach is fresh, pepper is ground fresh, salt is sea…etc. my point is once it’s together it’s great.. even freshly chopped garlic….( on the second half I added a bit of veganese and think it’s a slight improvement to the spinach component.
