Chickpea Salsa

Chickpea Salsa

I’m always up for a delicious salad, but at the end of the day, I often realize I didn’t eat enough veggies. In an effort to sneak more greens into my diet I wanted to make a healthy snack I could pack in my lunch.

As I brainstormed on what I could make that was loaded in veggies AND was delicious enough to make me excited to eat it – I came up with chickpea salsa! I was confident there would be loads of recipes on Pinterest, but as I scrolled around I realized I was wrong. So I hit the grocery store without a recipe and decided to wing it. And guess what?! It turned out to be an instant hit!
