Do you have a garden? Well if you do and you grow zucchini then this recipe is for you!
I am back at it again and adding yet another grain salad to your recipe card box! Today’s recipe for Zucchini Chickpea Quinoa Salad was inspired by a recent salad I bought at a new grocery store called Fresh Thyme in Chicago. I must admit I am spoiled with the amount of grocery store options that are near me. It is a foodies dream!
They have a big section of prepared salads and sometimes when I am in a hurry and need a quick lunch I stop there. Recently I purchased a salad very similar to this Zucchini Chickpea Quinoa Salad and decided I wanted to try and recreate it. Since we are now in the warmer months many people will be growing zucchini in their gardens and zucchini tends to grow like a weed! I know each year I have a lot of extra zucchini and am always looking for new ways to use it. This salad is the perfect solution!
My favorite thing about this salad is the dressing that mixes olive oil, cumin, turmeric and paprika to create a nice spiced flavor.
