Chickpea Salad Sandwich

And just like that summer has disappeared…..

Hello, my wonderful friends!

I just realized that it has been almost an entire summer season since I posted last.  I had a summer full of activism, sanctuaries, fitness, friends and of course, food!  And I wanted to share our favorite, summer recipe, that we ate time and time again.  Honestly, we probably still make this recipe 2-3 times per week and never get sick of it!!

It is delicious, easy to make, packed with protein, and is great to share at parties, barbecues or even just with a friend for lunch.  I hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.
