Eat Skinny Be Skinny: Fresh Chick Pea Salad Recipe

Pin It PIN IT!

I apologize in advance if this post is really short and not full of the usual Claire banter, wit or humor. As I write this, my eyes are crossing due to exhaustion. My darling cousin (who was the MOH at my wedding) surprised me with a trip out here on Saturday!

I always have SO MUCH FUN when we are together and this weekend was no different! We drank too much wine, went out for some good food, did a bit of shopping and just had fun catching up. I love spontaneous meet-ups! She leaves at 10pm today so we are going to head to the city to visit a few museums this afternoon!

But before we can go be tourists in my own city, I want to share this AMAZINGLY simple and delicious summer salad I made last week.

Made with beets, chick peas, fresh lemon zest and a little celery, this is one of the easiest salads you will EVER make. No joke. It took like 5 minutes to make.

How perfect would this be during the spring and summer? I’ve already made it again (since last week) and every bite reminds me of a warm, sunny day in June.

Could you find an easier, and more delicious, side dish? I think not.

For the easy and delicious recipe, check out She Knows! I’m off to go be a tourist, have a great Tuesday friends!
