Recipe of the Day: Chickpea & Cucumber Salad

Are you looking for a new side or  main dish option? Well here it is. I always have a can of chickpeas in my cupboard. I use  organic  – generally they have less sodium than the non organic cans of beans. I always also always have cucumbers on hand – English cucumbers or Persian cucumbers – yummy! This recipe is super simple and will be a regular in rotation on your weekly menus. Another thing, you can always substitute the lemon for a vinegar that you have. If you haven’t tried rice wine vinegar, this salad would be a great one to try it on.
