BBQ Chickpea Salad

BBQ Chickpea Salad

Although I am a vegetarian, I'm not a huge fan of salads. 


If I eat a salad, I need it to be loaded up with all kinds of flavors while still being nutrition and protein packed. 

This BBQ Chickpea Salad is adapted from this recipe.


I used my favorite Organic BBQ Sauce from Organicville, but any will do!  I also recreated the dressing from the recipe for this picture, but have found that Sprouts' Organic Chipotle Ranch or our favorite Ranch from local Warehouse Pizza.




Some other additions I have made in the past have been:
adding cilantro to the dressing, 
adding fresh cilantro, pepitas, 
black olives or fresh avocado to the salad.

This is definitely a favorite salad of mine, and it's perfect to take to work because I can pack up the salad and chickpeas separately, then toss the chickpeas in the BBQ sauce before constructing the salad.
