Spicy Chicken & Chickpea Salad

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

A delicious and healthy composed-style salad that you can make as spicy as you wish. I love the whole thing, but I especially love the bite of the lemon juice and chili oil in the green salad. And the chickpea salad is a meal in itself! Makes a great lunch or light dinner, substantial but not overly filling.

This was amazing! Made exactly as described, but scaled down for two. I'm already planning to make this again for friends this weekend. Such a refreshing combination of flavours! And very filling without leaving one feeling heavy. It'd be really nice as a summer salad with a chilled white wine. :-)
