Greek salad with roasted chickpeas

What you’ll need:
1 head of romaine lettuce
1/2 red onion cut into thin slices
large green olives
1 large avocado cubed
1 cucumber chopped
1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
Olive oil
Sea salt

What to do:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Line a baking sheet and spread the chickpeas out evenly (for added flavor you can soak the chick peas in white vinegar for an hour before you lay them on the baking sheet)
Lightly coat the chickpeas with olive oil
Sprinkle sea salt on the chickpeas
Bake for 40 minutes until golden brown
Set aside

Wash and tear romaine lettuce into small pieces
Place in a large mixing bowl
Add olives, cucumbers, onions, avocado and chickpeas
Add your favorite greek or balsamic vinaigrette dressing
(The recipe for the dressing I use is below)
Mix thoroughly and enjoy!

If you are wanting to add more protein to this meal grilled or baked salmon would be a great addition on top of this salad.

Balsamic Vinaigrette:
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
3/4 cup olive oil
Juice from 1/2 of a lemon
1 tsp sea salt
1 black pepper
Place all ingredients in jar with a screw top lid and shake until combined.
