Quick and Easy Carrot and Chickpea Salad
I love this fresh and satisfying salad and have had it as a side salad and as as a main dish for lunch (keeps well for at least 2 days)! Simple, inexpensive, quick to put together and it uses ingredients that I always have on hand. The cumin gives it a nice Moroccan twist and because I love cumin, I did add an extra half teaspoon and I might try a pinch of cinnamon next time. I also used green onion instead of the white and will try it with a red onion next time. This one is a keeper!

Summer Kale, Avocado, Mango, and Chickpea Salad with Citrus Poppy Seed Vinaigrette
This was a lovely combination of tastes and textures. The dressing was perfect - hint of sweetness but not overly sweet. Loved the combination of mangoes and avocados and the chick peas added a bit of substance or "meatiness" to the salad. I made it as per the recipe and it was delicious! If I were to tweak, I would add some dried cranberries for an additional color contrast - but definitely didn't need it for the flavor. I suspect you could also sub spinach for the kale and it would still be wonderful.

Lemon-Basil Quinoa Salad
This was wonderful on a hot and humid day. It made 4 generous main dish servings - would easily serve 6-8 as part of a larger meal. Loved the zing of the lemon juice and zest - my only tweak was to add garlic and a teaspoon of olive oil - because I love garlic! Luckily, I have a lot of basil in the garden - because I will be making this again.
