Chickpea salad

Chickpea Salad combines all of my favorite fresh vegetables in one delicious bite. Chickpeas are combined with juicy tomatoes, refreshing cucumbers tangy purple cabbage all tossed in an easy homemade lemon kissed dressing.

I just love summary salads, in these days being in lock down (we are in partial lock down) everyday many things we wants to eat and having those craving....My family and nearest friends who are living close to us, on a weekend we are trying different recipes at home, and interesting thing is the boys having interest in cooking a lot these days...hence, Thts not a good news for me actually, as they request to make this make that, and workload is more now ;) but yes we do enjoy having all the stuff and few indoor games. so because of having these many dishes, on this weekend we sorted ourselves with simple salad with chickpea and yummy dressing we made with lemon olive oil and garlic based mixed herbs. The salad was so yummy and tummy was full only by having it.
