Bright Spring Salad

This super easy and light salad can be doubled or tripled for a family. You can vary it up by roasting the chickpeas for added texture. To make a complete meal, increase the amount of chickpeas or add another lean protein source like chicken breast or fish. This salad is refreshing and packed with antioxidants, fiber, and healthy fats.
