I’d like to introduce you to my go-to lunch. This Kale Chickpea Salad is packed full of delicious kale, and crunchy chickpeas. That’s right. It only comprises of two ingredients (not including the vegan salad dressing). It is so tasty and may just become your new favourite lunch!
Have you ever tried massaging your kale? I kid you not, it honestly does wonders on eating raw kale. It makes the kale less bitter, and the leaves become soft, rather than tough. It truly is a must! The roasted chickpeas in this bowl add a fun crunch to the salad. But the best part is the dressing. It has no sugar or sweetener of any kind, and you truly aren’t missing anything without it.
Of course, the best judge is the Picky Husband. Typically, when Adam sees anything green he doesn’t tend to get overly excited, but with this salad, he always gobbles it up and occasionally will ask for seconds. Shocking, I know. Clearly, this big bowl of greens is Picky Husband Approved.
here are a few reasons why I love this Kale Chickpea Salad, so listen up!
- There are zero sweeteners in this salad. You might think that dressing would require at least a drop of sweetness, but this vegan salad dressing is completely savoury and it will knock your socks off.
- This salad is simple. Two main ingredients and you truly don’t feel like anything is missing. The chickpeas are beautifully seasoned and the massaged kale doesn’t have a harsh texture. It is the perfect quick and easy lunch to enjoy.
- These chickpeas can be added to any salad. They would act as a crouton for those gluten-free people out there. They are crisp, loaded with flavour and they have the perfect texture.
This salad has a big dose of your daily greens and protein. It’s savoury, crunchy, and lip-smackingly delicious. So get massaging, and dive right into this beauty of a salad! ♥
