Easy Chickpea Basil Salad

Easy Chickpea Basil Salad | www.thatwasvegan.com

Greetings from the Rocky Mountains, where it is raining like a mutha! We need it of course, so I can’t complain. And when the sun finally does come out, everything is so green and lovely. I actually find the rain very cozy, when I’m inside. It’s when I have to commute in it with all those crazy drivers who apparently think to themselves “OMG! It’s raining! I need to slam on my brakes and go 4 mph!” that it starts to wear on me.

Anyhoozle, I have a super quick recipe for you today. I threw this together on Sunday afternoon and it made two lunches this week. Two healthy, delicious lunches, and it only took 10 minutes! It would also make a good side dish, and is perfect for those hot days when you really don’t wanna turn on your stove or oven!

The best part about this dish was that the basil and tomatoes came from my own little garden!

    Perfect timing! I’m making this for a celebration we are doing tonight on the site of our new co-housing project here in Alaska.

    I love how this salad feeds two and not about 800. More like this please?

    I totally want to put this in a pita with some chopped onion on top and stuff it into my face like a chipmunk. 🙂
