After a long weekend of camping, a large salad with tons of roughage really did the trick! This salad has everything you need to get back on track to your healthy lifestyle. I especially love it because its so easy to make. Roast your chickpeas and vegetables, which will take 25 minutes and toss in your dressing – done! Easy meal in 30 minutes or less. This salad will serve 5-6 people.
