BCSI love simple recipes that have a few really good wholesome ingredients and are really more about assembling than cooking. I also love simple recipes that contain more than one of my favorite foods brought together in a new and exciting way.

Well, I am pleased to say that today’s recipe includes all of these conditions – this recipe for Broccoli and Chickpea Salad I found in Whole Living magazine.

I love broccoli and chickpeas and this recipe celebrates both in a way I never would have thought to bring together before.

I made this salad with only a few minor substitutions (I don’t care for pine nuts) and it was delicious. Even though it was the middle of winter when I made this salad, I ate it with cold chicken and it was nice lunch. Now I can’t wait for summer when this will really be a perfect addition to any meal.
