chickpea and bulgur salad


I’m so happy to finally get back to the blog and to be able to share with you a new post. Even though, a short one. The last few weeks have been so busy and hectic that I hardly got the chance for any proper blogging or sharing new recipes, despite all the ideas that I would really really love to share with you…Hopefully soon!

Left with some extra cooked chickpeas, it was time to make some hummus salad (hummus is the arabic word for chickpeas) using some simple and fresh ingredients already available at home. This salad is so yummy and will make you feel happy…oh wait, is not it what healthy comfort food is all about? 🙂

Give it a try when you can, and drop me a line, or two, or more ;), and let me know what you think!
