Notes

*An easy option for green peas is a frozen steamer pack! Cook while chickpeas are roasting and set aside to cool prior to placing on salad.
*A few dressings we enjoy with this salad include: a simple oil and vinegar dressing, a lemon based vinegar dressing, and a cucumber ranch yogurt based dressing.
*Note: Stored roasted chickpeas tend to lose their crispy-ness but will still taste good. They will still be great for salads for 1-2 days after cooking, making them a good option for those who like to meal prep.
*Nutrition Facts do not include dressing as calories can vary widely depending on selection of dressing
