HERBED CHICKPEA SALAD

Top it with a dollop of yogurt.

“This nutrient-packed salad doesn’t require any greens. The chickpeas give you enough protein to stay energized throughout the day,” says New York City-based recipe developer Julia Gartland. “The bright herbs are a great way to elevate the dish both in presentation and taste.”
