If you were challenged to come up with a recipe that featured the three main ingredients of spinach, chickpeas and pepper (any sort) what do you think you would come up with? It’s a tough one. I know.
I came up with this recipe for Spinach, Chickpea and Red Pepper Salad with Asian Cashew Dressing and I think it’s a pretty darned good one (if I do say so myself)!


This fresh and healthy salad takes only a matter or moments to assemble and would be perfect as a light summertime lunch or dinner. The chickpeas provide the healthy protein your body needs, the veggies taste bright and lively, and the Asian Cashew Dressing is deliciously nutty with a hint of sweetness.
