Chickpeas and Tuna with Dijon Dressing and Herbs

After trying several chickpea-based light recipes and being not completely satisfied, I decided to create my own. This recipe incorporates many of my favorite salad toppings and is an easy and healthy lunch, side, or main dish.

Instructions

  1. 1In a bowl whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, and dijon mustard.
  2. 2In another bowl, combine all the other ingredients that you wish to include and pour dressing over and mix well.
  3. 3Cover and chill for an hour or so to allow flavors to blend and then serve over baby spinach, rice or by itself.
