Summer Chickpea Salad

Summer Chickpea Salad

This salad of crunchy radishes, juicy cherry tomatoes, mild green onions, chickpeas, and feta is delicious with or without lettuce.

For a different spin, we combined our leftover bean mixture with a can of tuna — and it’s a revelation!

Keep the mixture separate from the salad greens until you’re ready to serve, then top the summer chickpea salad with creamy avocado slices.
