Chickpea Salad /Channa Salad

Salads are easy to make,filling and its a healthy meal.As we prefer salads with legumes I make this simple chickpea salad often.Its a great option for dieting as it has protein and low in calorie.

This is one such colorful salad with the crunchiness of veggies with the flavor of ginger.Here I used black pepper powder,ginger and lemon juice for a simple dressing.The veggies can be altered as per personal preference.
