Yum Alert: Toasty Parmesan Chickpea Salad

Written by emilyc

This is a yummy, cheesy, salty, crunchy, and satisfying salad that gives you a little break from your ordinary lettuce-based salad. Chickpeas lend this dish a healthy dose of protein and fiber, making it a smart meal or side dish…if you overlook the bacon component. Recipe and image via HowSweetEats.com.
