Summer is filled with get togethers. Gathering at the beach, at a friend’s place, camping. Whatever the summer gathering, salads are always a great pick! This salad is full of farm fresh local produce as well as chickpeas for protein.
I have put the amounts for the veggies in the instructions. I could have easily said half of a cucumber instead of 1/2 cup, but all veggies are different sizes. You can mix and match amounts and various veggies to make this salad your own! Adding the lemon zest is optional, depending on how lemony you’d like it.
