So fresh and so good!

Roasted chickpeas add a nutty, crunch to this Mediterranean-inspired salad made with crisp cucumber slices and juicy tomatoes served on top of a bed of colorful spring greens.

The bright-flavorful dish is perfect as a meal all on its own for lunch or dinner, or serve it as an uplifting tasty side dish to serve alongside chicken, fish, or shrimp. And, who doesn’t need an uplifting meal at this time of year?

The hearty benefit

The hearty benefit to this salad is fiber and protein-rich chickpeas that also happen to be inexpensive, and incredibly versatile for many dishes (more chickpea recipes will be coming to G-Free Deliciously soon, I promise). You can even eat chickpeas from the can, though I’m hoping that you’ll consider taking things a step further to enhance the flavor by roasting them, then using them to make this Roasted Chickpea Salad!

For the dressing

I’ve whipped up an easy-to-make Balsamic vinaigrette. To make it, combine the dressing ingredients: olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, salt and pepper, onion powder, oregano, and minced garlic in a small bowl or large measuring cup and whisk together. You could also add the dressing ingredients into a small jar with a lid and shake to combine. If time allows, let the dressing sit for 30 minutes so that the flavors of the spices combine.

When you're ready to serve

Divide the spring greens between two salad plates. Top with roasted chickpeas, sliced cucumbers, tomatoes, and the optional onion and cheese if you desire. Drizzle with the homemade balsamic vinaigrette dressing, toss lightly before serving. Enjoy immediately!

I hope this Mediterranean-inspired Roasted Chickpea Salad with Balsamic Dressing brightens your week and adds a little variety to your healthy meal routine this Spring. If you try it, I’d love to hear what you think! Let me know in the comments section below. Your feedback means a bunch! ♥
