A satisfying salad can be hard to find in the cold depths of winter. Sometimes a bowl full of greens does not cut it when you are chilled to the bone and craving stick to your ribs food. This is often where I opt to make a healthy stew or soup to satisfy comfort food cravings, but my mom recently found and shared a this Mint and Chick Pea Salad recipe that does the trick.
The original recipe is from Chef Michael’s Kitchen, but she has updated it a bit to have more veggies and a lighter dressing. Despite the changes, this salad still that has a comfort food feel without a lot of prep time or extra calories. The bonus? It’s also a beautiful dish to share with friends or bring to a potluck.
