Quinoa & Chickpea Salad

This salad is refreshing and super simple to make!

I am starting school soon and figured I should start experimenting with simple but healthy meals that are easy to take on the go! This is the first recipe but stand by, more will follow soon!

My preferred way of eating this is cold, with hummus and toasted tortillas. Honestly you can eat this however you’d like; in a wrap, by itself, or spread it over a bed of lettuce.
