Recipe: Chickpea and Grape Tomato Salad :: Easy Like a Sunday Morning

Easy Like a Sunday Morning, that’s how the recipes in my “Easy” category will be. Nothing rushed or frantic, nothing with a long list of ingredients. Something that is so easy, you don’t really need a recipe. Something that almost cooks itself or requires no cooking at all.

With the days getting longer and warmer, I’m noticing more salad recipes cropping up. I don’t know about you, but I sure am craving more raw foods these days.

This simple salad is one that I’ve been making for years, I got the recipe from a Naturopathic Clinic.

Here are some of the things that I love about this salad…

  • only five main ingredients
  • the ingredients are naturally gluten free
  • really quick and easy to put together
  • a great combination of flavors and colors
  • tastes even better after a bit of refrigeration
  • the leftovers (if there are any) taste great a day or two later
  • stable with the dressing on, making it a nice choice to pack up for a BBQ, picnic or potluck

      April, this salad is one of our favourites. My daughter made one to bring over for our dinner this evening. It was lovely and I managed to forget to send her bowl home with her…so guess who gets to have the leftovers 😉

      Vicky, I hope you get to try the recipe. It’s one of our go to recipes here in the Fox Household. It holds up well enough to pack in a lunch or on a picnic.
