mediterranean chickpea salad

This huge salad was so filling I couldn’t finish it, no matter how hard I tried. And it’s under 350 calories even with the dressing!


2 cups of organic spinach, torn

3 organic broccoli florets, segmented

1/3 cup of organic chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed (BPA-free can)

1 baby bella mushroom, or other variety of your choice

1 very small early girl tomato, chopped (these are sweeter than others)

2 pinches or 1 tablespoon of raw organic sunflower seeds

2 tablespoons of Newman’s EVOO and vinegar (or other you prefer)

1 teaspoon of real lemon juice liquid (or 1 lemon wedge)

Pepper to taste (no need for salt when using dressing)

Handful each of your fav veggies, but for this one I did chopped organic cucumber with peel and organic red bell pepper, chopped.


Place spinach down, then beans, then all the other ingredients. Top with dressing and viola! Super yummy and filling!
