Colorful Chickpea Salad

Colorful Chickpea Salad

So guys this is gonna be my last post for a little while. I’m off to Boardmasters music festival down in Cornwall for the weekend, due back Monday so I won’t be able to share any recipes with you. I will however be able to share all the awesome new food I’ve tried at Boardmasters! Back to today’s recipe, I adore chickpeas and I’m always thinking of new ways to eat them and today I came up with this beauty. It’s such a gorgeous combination, the sundried to tomato paste is delicious and the cumin seeds give it that extra something! I love the bright colours in this salad and it suits the summer weather perfectly! This salad comes in at 246 calories so it’s perfect for a light lunch or to have with grilled chicken or fish for a healthy dinner!
