Mediterranean Chickpea Salad

Packing a lunch can be boring and daunting after awhile.  I’m always on the hunt for easy and delicious recipes that I can prep for the week to help me stay on track.  This chickpea salad is bursting with veggies and flavor.  The best part; the longer it sits the more flavorful it becomes.

  • 2/3 cup chopped bell pepper (mix red/yellow/orange)
  • 3/4 cup halved grape tomatoes
