Every New Year I try to keep some resolutions, but in the end I won’t I am not able to keep them as I wished. So, this year I want a change I decide to eat healthy food, means more salad and sourdough bread. I made this Mediterranean chickpea and egg salad for our dinner. Yes, it is really filling one you can make it as breakfast, lunch or dinner. I used Great Day Farms Hard Boiled Eggs.
I love Mediterranean cuisine because of their unique spices, yes, I am spice loving girl. Love to use Sumac, Zaatar, Aleppo pepper, dry mint etc. I like to grab all these during my visit to middle eastern store. This protein rich salad only requires a simple lemony dressing made with lemon juice, olive oil, sumac, Aleppo pepper and balsamic vinegar. This is no cook recipe if you use canned chickpeas otherwise only cooking includes is cooking chickpeas. You can find Great Day Farms Hard-Boiled Eggs at Walmart in the Deli section. Also, you can buy either 2 pack or 6 pack. There an ibotta offer of $0.25 off 2-pack and $0.50 off the 6-when you buy from Walmart.
I found that Great Day Farms Hard-Boiled Eggs is convenient and great tasting one at a great value. As I don’t need to cook and then comes dread thing of peeling the eggs. Always I tend to lose half of my eggs whites while peeling the shell. We are family who loves to eat hard boiled eggs than the other version of cooked eggs. If you are looking for a healthy change in your diet, then try to buy Great day Farms Hard boiled eggs.
This Mediterranean chickpea and egg salad are so easy to put together once you got the dressing ready, then comes mix in part. Make sure to mix eggs only last if you don’t want crushed eggs. I like to slice them in round that way every bite has some eggs. If you want, you can slice eggs into 4 pieces. I used fresh herbs like cilantro instead of Parsley and mint.
If you are looking for simple satisfying meal, then try this simple protein loaded colorful salad.
