Did you feel it today?? Spring is in the air...maybe wishful thinking for the middle of February! It was lovely and mild though--even a bit sunny this morning--you can't ask for much more on a middle of winter day!
All this mild weather has got me hankering some lighter, more summery foods--do you find you get to that point in the middle of the season where you are already craving foods from the next season? Happens to me without fail every time!
Here is a great salad recipe--great for lunch or on the side of BBQ.
Lemony Chickpea Salad
1/4 cup Greek style salad dressing
Juice and zest from 1 lemon
1 can chickpeas drained and rinsed
1 small red pepper diced
2 green onion dices
cracked pepper to taste
Whisk the salad dressing, lemon and zest together. Add Chickpeas, pepper, gr. onion and toss. Add cracked pepper. Serve at room temp. This salad gets better the longer it has been sitting...so if you have time, make it a couple of hours in advance.
