    I’m not a huge fan of plain salads. But when you add lots of fiber (chickpeas) and cheese, then they become special and they do fill you up. This one has both and has a great citrus dressing. Add a few squirts of fresh lime of orange juice to give it even more citrusy taste.

    Chickpea Salad with Feta Cheese

    Chickpea Salad with Feta Cheese

    4 servings
    178 calories per serving

    1 15oz. can chickpeas, drained
    2 scallions, sliced
    1/2 c grape tomatoes, halved
    3 T fresh parsley, chopped
    3 C bagged salad mix (I like to use a mix of organic greens or mesclun mix)
    2 oz. low fat feta cheese
    1 t lemon zest
    2 T lemon juice
    1 t oil
    1 garlic clove, minced

    Savor the Thyme and Tangled Noodle are hosting a fun filled challenge, “Eating Your Words”, and I’ve decided to enter. We basically just had to use food to spell out an idea.

    I had read about their challenge and then was going about my day and was thinking about what I might submit. I was getting ready to make my salad when it hit me…carved cucumbers. So here’s my entry – and remember, eat your veggies !
