Roasted Veggie Chickpea Salad

ok, salads can be totally, blah. however, when you add all of the roasted veggies, chickpeas, pecans and the best dressing ever, you have a hearty and delicious salad that feels anything but blah. if you want to add some protein, one of my recipes, The Best Crispy Tofu would be a fantastic addition!

the secret to the yummy dressing is spicy mustard and a lot of minced garlic. it’s a salad that’s packed with tons flavor. apple cider vinegar adds a necessary sour component and maple syrup balances it out with some sweetness.

if there’s anything in here you’re not a fan of from the veggies to the pecans, you could definitely make some swaps! most veggies will work and i think sweet potatoes, bell peppers and butternut squash would make great replacements!

have a wonderful rest of your Wednesday and YAY, were halfway through the week haha. i’m extra excited for the weekend because my husband’s vacation starts Sunday :).
