Chickpea Tahini Salad

Chickpea Tahini Salad

This Chickpea Tahini Salad is a flavorful salad that is packed with protein and fiber and tossed with a delicious and creamy Lemon Tahini salad dressing. Plus this protein rich salad is vegan and gluten-free!

Hearty and delicious summer salad

This chickpea confetti salad is one of my family’s summer staples. 

It was initially inspired from extra chickpeas, tahini, and lemon juice leftover from making homemade hummus. 

I mixed in some chopped red bell pepper, parsley, and red onion to add some color and crunch. 

This salad is especially delicious served with grilled lemon rosemary chicken on top of a bed of baby spinach.
