Spicy Chickpea Spinach Salad Recipe

Happy Easter foodie friends,

I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter holiday with family and friends and let’s hope next year things will be back to normal again. So, let’s talk about SALADS. I haven’t shared a salad recipe in a while so here is one that might be of interest to you my fellow foodie friends my Spicy Chickpea Spinach Salad Recipe.

A Salad is usually the main course for me. This time this delicious Spicy Chickpea Spinach Salad was a side dish. I had prepared roasted salmon marinated in herbs for our main course but I was hesitant to add a green salad, so I went with this spicy treat. This simple salad has a wonderful combination of flavors and colors. I spiced it up a bit with Chili flakes and added tomato paste to make it unique.

Chickpeas seem to be one of those love-hate relationships for many. I’m not sure why this is but I have come across many who do not enjoy eating chickpeas. I thought about this for a while and it came down to the name Chick and pea. That’s got to be it! What do you think?

Have a great day everyone!!
