I almost titled this post "BEST Chickpea Salad Ever" because I love it so. dang. much. (it felt a little cliche, so I refrained). I've eaten a lot of chickpea salads in my day, but this one is by far the easiest and most flavorful. No cooking required (just a little chopping) and loaded with fresh crunchy veggies, parsley, garlic, lemon and goat cheese.

The recipe is super versatile, so feel free to use whatever veggies you like! I've eaten this over greens like a salad, stuffed into a wrap with hummus and just straight up for quick meals. Can't wait for you to try this one!
