Chili-Lime Chickpea Salad | Fabtastic Eats My husband has been working ridiculous hours at the moment. Like, going in at 3 in the morning and not getting home until 6at night, then pretty much going right to sleep to do it all over again. It’s not supposed to last to much longer, but we’ll see. I’ve hardly seen him at all in the last week. He’s going to get a little break for the labor day weekend and I’m so excited! Are you doing anything crazy?

Chili-Lime Chickpea Salad | Fabtastic Eats Last year we had a big party with a giant slip and slide, (like 100 feet long, and 20 feet wide…it was a show!), and a backyard clambake. Sadly, we’re not around any of our family and friends this year, so I have a feeling it’s going to be much more low key!

Regardless of what you’re doing, or where you’re going, you should make this Chili-Lime Chickpea Salad! It’s a snap to throw together, like 15 minutes, and it tastes soooo fantastic! It’s a great make ahead dish, and actually, the longer it sits, the better!

Chili-Lime Chickpea Salad | Fabtastic Eats I tend to make something like this at the beginning of each week to have something healthy and delicious to snack on, or eat with my lunch! And they’re my favorite to bring to outdoor BBQ’s, so cool and refreshing! Enjoy!
