Wild arugula & chickpea salad

Wild arugula & chickpea salad

Sorry I’ve been ignoring you so much lately. I got you this salad to make up for it.

It’s been a crazy couple of days, but I’m feeling like my batteries are recharged and just in time for spring…whenever that plans on happening. Between sweeping changes to the house, I’ve barely had a minute to cook. But I’m still eating healthy and gearing up for the Broad Street Run in less than two weeks. With a bum knee for another few days, I’m keeping fit with healthy foods, including this salad that I ate for like three days straight.

2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
