Zesty Greek-Inspired Salad with Crispy Chickpeas

Health and happiness in a bowl: that’s this Zesty Greek-Inspired Salad with Crispy Chickpeas!

I adore salads: what a tasty way to get in your veggies! And Greek salad has become one of my major culinary crushes over the last few years. It’s such a flavor-saturated, satisfying dish! It’s also a beloved staple in diners here in the Metro-Detroit area (what we call “Coney” or “Coney Island” restaurants, based off of the iconic chili-topped hot dogs they serve).

It was about time I created a recipe that pays homage to this wonderful salad. Enter Zesty Greek-Inspired Salad with Crispy Chickpeas!

Citrusy Feta and Parsley Beet Salad

Citrusy Feta and Parsley Beet Salad

Happy 2016! I am one of those people who is obsessed with the dawning of a new year and all of the promise it brings. New projects! New trips! New seasons of fave telly shows (Girls Season 5 what what! Only 48 days away!)! And of course, with the new year comes new food – probably the best promise of them all for someone like me who enjoys bumbling around in the kitchen. I look forward to developing and sharing new recipes with you as much as I look forward to discovering what crazy shenanigans Hannah and the gang have gotten themselves into this year (supes excited for Girls Season 5 and the excuse to order HBO for a few months, as you can tell).

The new year should be ushered in with a recipe that is bright and fresh and earthy and tangy – and that preferably goes well with leftover champagne. And that vibes well with any health-related resolutions we may have set. This citrusy feta and parsley beet salad checks all those boxes, in my humble opinion.
