This was a wonderfully fresh and tangy salad that I served along with a main dish instead of with pita bread.

This ticks all the boxes for me. Healthy, fresh, tangy, colourful and delicious. Made half a batch as a side to an Italian meal. I will make this often. So quick and so tasty. Thanks for posting.

Yum! A healthy yum! I really loved the dressing flavor on this chickpea salad. I didn't do the grilled pita fingers this time, but the chickpea salad was so delicious all on its own. I couldn't find red chili peppers in our stores, so used a jalapeno instead. Thank you for the healthy lunch!
