Summer Chickpea Salad

Chick peas are a vegetarian delicacy. They are some of my favourite beans to put into chilis, salads, currys, soups or eating them on their own roasted as a snack. They are very easily incorporated into meals.  

Chick peas provide an excellent source of protein, fiber and healthy fats. Three things very essential to a vegetetarian diet for good digestive, and brain health. They also contain manganese, copper, phosphorous, iron and zinc. Some of the best minerals you can give your body. 

I find making these cute little salads are great for summer lunch. You can make them ahead of time and put your ingredients into a mason jar with a lime to squeeze for your dressing. They are simple, refreshing and nutritious.
