Fraiche Nutrition: Chickpea Feta Salad
Chickpeas get a lot of love in our house. Then again, what is there not to love? This Mediterranean powerhouse is full of fibre, protein, along with a long list of vitamins and minerals. Chickpeas have been shown to help control blood sugar, maintain good bone and heart health, improve digestion, and even help with weight loss. That’s a long list of credentials for a little bean. As an added bonus, 2016 happens to be the ‘Year of the Pulse,’ not that we need an excuse to eat more beans and lentils.
This salad can be made in advance, making it perfect for entertaining or taking along for a picnic. Incredibly simple and packed with Mediterranean flavours, this will quickly become a favourite!
- Combine all ingredients together
