Curried Chickpea Salad
This Curried Chickpea Salad is full of flavor and only takes 15 minutes to make. It is a great meal prep recipe! Enjoy in a sandwich, wrap, add it to a bed of greens, or enjoy with naan or pita bread.
I also really love this Curried Chickpea Salad because the flavors are unique and SO delicious. Smashed chickpeas are combined with celery, onion, cilantro crunchy cashews, raisins, and a creamy curry dressing.
Some of the flavors might sound like an odd mix, BUT trust me, they all play nicely together. I LOVE the flavors and textures.
This is a great meal prep recipe because the salad holds up in the fridge for up to five days. I love pulling it out on busy days when I am craving something healthy and delicious.
