(I won’t try to deny that I cried about 3/4 of the movie.)
Who is responsible for that movie? It is literally the saddest thing I have ever seen.
I had to leave at lunch break and drive home to see Hunter.
This salad is the easiest thing in the world to make, and perfect for when you don’t really feel like cooking (and are emotionally drained from crying over Owen Wilson and a beautiful yellow lab all day).
I got the idea for this salad from my friends Ashley and John who brought a similar salad to pizza night last Friday, so you can really thank them for this recipe!
Italian Chickpea Salad
red onion, thinly sliced
vinegar (your choice, I used rice vinegar because it is subtle)
fresh ground black pepper
chickpeas, drained and rinsed
chopped kalamata olives
sliced and stems discarded
cucumber, peeled and diced
bell pepper julienned
so slices of pepperoni, sliced into strips
finely chopped fresh parsley
finely diced Parmesan cheese (or other cheese you might have)
In a large bowl, combine EVOO, vinegar and S&p. Combine and then add chopped onions.
Add the rest of the ingredients to build the rest of the salad on top of the onions so they have some time to mellow out in the dressing at the bottom.
Stir to combine.
Serve immediately or let sit covered in the fridge for a bit. This will be good the next day too!
This Italian couscous salad is really two recipes in one. one for crispy, spicy toasted chickpeas that are perfect for eating by the hand full and a second for a tasty salad that’s great either as a side dish or by itself for lunch
Zesty Italian Pasta Salad. this pasta salad is a real crowd pleaser. 1 box Betty Crocker Suddenly Salad Classic pasta salad mix. 1/2 cup Italian dressing. 1/2 cup green pepper, (cut into thin strips, about 1 1/2 Zesty Italian Pasta Salad. 1 box Betty Crocker Suddenly Salad Classic pasta salad mix. 1/2 cup Italian dressing
Either way they are DE-LISH and protein packed from the crunchy chickpeas. I am really not sure where this idea sparked but one day my taste buds were crying out for caesar dressing which made me think of my lightened caesar salad with crunchy cornbread croutons recipe
