Cilantro Lime Chickpea Salad

Cilantro Lime Chickpea Salad

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and decided to try it out to go along with our Avocado Pita Pizzas with Cilantro sauce.  While I had out the fresh cilantro and food processor, it seemed a perfect accompaniment.

Angela from Oh She Glows made this recipe and I modified it only in that I did not use diced onion.
We're just not onion fans around here, and I wanted to give this recipe a fighting chance!  I also replaced the spinach with fresh kale.

I chopped the kale finely in the food processor, then added it to rinsed and drained chickpeas.

Then I made the dressing by pulsing lime juice, cilantro, Dijon mustard, sugar, garlic, cumin, and oil in the food processor (following the directions that I didn't even need to rinse out the food processor after chopping the kale - super easy!).

It just makes a little bit of dressing, which is all this recipe needs.

I tossed the chickpeas, kale and dressing together, then served the salad over a bed of brown rice that I had in the fridge.  Others on Pinterest recommended serving it on romaine, quinoa, and Basmati rice.  I'm sure they'd all be great!

Really delicious!
