Herbed Chickpea Salad

Herbed Chickpea Salad

Think "healthy potato salad" with this herbed-up and creamy dish. Perfect on its own or shoveled into a hoagie roll for a delicious sammie.

Creamy and delicious, this salad is like elevated potato salad-- swapping protein-rich chickpeas for starchy potatoes, and adding a zip of lemon juice, spicy radishes, and a pile of aromatic herbs. Whip this up for a perfect vegetarian side dish for a backyard BBQ or take-along lunch.
