Everyday Chickpea-Quinoa Salad From Appetite For Reduction

August 9, 2011

Yeah, I actually used a book for a salad recipe. It was good! This is the first recipe in the book Appetite For Reduction. I found the recipe here as well. The homemade dressing is really easy and  a great idea. I think there might have been a bit too much dressing, but that is easily solved by adding  more ingredients.

I like that the grains play the major role in this salad, and that the lettuce isn’t too much. It is a nice change. I was worried about it getting soggy after sitting in the fridge since I rarely like leftover salad but this one was okay. In fact, it might have tasted better, and I added more romaine on the second pass for a bit more volume.

    I used cabbage instead of (ugh) lettuce. Way better idea.
