Chickpea Salad

Make a full batch of the roasted chickpeas and enjoy the leftovers for snacks. Added to salads, they offer a nice, flavorful crunch that, packed with protein and fiber, will keep you full. The dressing, however, is what really makes this salad pop. Whisk up extra and store in the fridge for easy, protein-packed dressings for your favorite salads.

Ingredients

  • Roasted Chickpeas:

    • 1 (29 oz.) can no-salt-added chickpeas, rinsed and well-drained
    • ⅛ tsp. cayenne
    • ½ tsp. garlic powder
    • ½ tsp. cumin
    • ½ tsp. paprika

    Dressing:

    • ½ cup hummus

    • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
    • ¼ cup red onion, thinly sliced
    • ¾ cup chopped fresh parsley
    • 20 low-sodium whole grain pita chips, crushed
