Simple and protein and fiber packed salad !! 🙂

Easy to assemble and it is usually my complete lunch, thrice a week.

I eat this salad so often, that my mom has started calling me ‘lazy bum’ 😛 Her generation thinks till you do not have a plate loaded with food, it’s not food. 😀

Presenting here the Chickpea salad from the Platter of Madness.
