Recipe: Curry Chickpea Salad

Chickpeas are magical.  They're so tasty, full of fiber, and take on really any flavor that you want.  I literally just invented this recipe and it came out super tasty.  Curry powder has become one of my favorite ingredients and literally makes me salivate.  If you haven't tried it or you think you're afraid of need to stop it right now.  It IS pretty potent, so you don't need a lot, but it has such wonderful flavor and  it just feels really satisfying.  This is a great salad to make ahead and eat for lunch for a few days in row!

2- 15oz. cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/2 medium red onion, diced
2 stalks celery, chopped
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 tsp. curry powder
2 tbsp. nonfat Greek yogurt
1 tsp. olive oil mayo
s & p

Add chickpeas, celery, and onion to a bowl.  In a smaller bowl, combine half of the lemon juice with the Greek yogurt, curry powder, s&p, and mayo.  Stir to combine and pour over chickpea mixture.  Pour the rest of the lemon juice over the mix and stir to coat. 

if you let this sit in the fridge for a bit, it tastes even better :)
