I grew up eating chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) and still love them to this day. They are nutrient dense, full of protein, fiber, and iron.

Because of their delightful taste and nutritional benefits, I am always looking for new ways to use them when cooking and often add them to salads or main course dishes. This Chickpea Salad with Lemon and Mint recipe is a perfect combination of fresh ingredients and is super simple to make. On it’s own or as a side, this recipe will fill you up and leave you smiling. For some added protein, simply add shrimp, chicken, or salmon.
