  • Build your salad! You can chop your lettuce if desired. Season your lettuce with a very small amout of sea salt and pepper, this is key. Add your cooked chicken, asparagus, artichokes, radish, eggs, avocado and chickpeas. Drizzle on your dressing and finish with plant based feta cheese.

Crispy Garlic Chickpeas

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place the chickpeas on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Season with garlic, paprika, salt and pepper, tossing to coat well. Roast for 15 minutes then toss and roast for 15 to 20 minutes more, until crispy!

Honey Lemon Vinaigrette

  • In a bowl, whisk together the vinegar, lemon juice, honey, garlic, basil, salt and pepper. Continue to whisk while streaming in the olive oil. This dressing stays great in the fridge in a sealed container for a week or so, so feel free to make a double batch if desired!
