Snowed In Tuna & Chickpea Salad Recipe

Dealing with all this snow and the polar vortex (whatever that means…) has made me crave summer foods.  Maybe I’m just fantasizing about warm temperatures, summery cocktails and warm waves crashing over me.  Yep, that’s it.

So yesterday while I was snowed in getting ready to watch the Bachelor preview, I decided to create a quick, summer salad topper recipe that had a great amount of protein and flavor.  Can’t wait to devour the leftovers for lunch today.

I served my tuna chickpea salad on a bed of mixed greens, which I would definitely recommend.  This combination would also be delicious between two pieces of Ezekiel bread as a sandwich or on its own, as well.

  1. This looks exactly like something else I made during the polar vortex as well! Too funny! I had beans, canned salmon, fresh bell peppers, and the new siggi’s mango jalapeno greek yogurt from Whole Foods-same type of thing! Whenever I can clean out my pantry and eat without having to go to the store in -10 windchill (or rain, for that matter) it’s a win. Looking forward to reading more from you!
