I don’t know about you, but by the time warmer weather hits, I’m ready for salads that you can throw together without ever having to heat up the oven. Using the oven in Central Texas in summer? No, thank you. Basically, I love being able to throw our protein of choice on the grill, pile a salad on the plate, and dinner is done.
Here’s the great thing about this particular salad – it will work with any veggies you like. Get creative! Don’t like chickpeas? Leave them out or substitute white beans. This would be delicious with some kalamata olives added in, or some chopped, crisp romaine hearts. This salad is so versatile, and would be perfect for a warm weather picnic or potluck.
