A savory, sweet, veggie filled salad, perfect for lunch or for just snacking during the week! Only 101 calories per serving! (2 SP)


  • 1 (15 oz can) chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
  • 3 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • Juice from 1/2 of a lemon
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1/4 C red onion
  • 1/3 of a Fuji apple
  • 1/2 C kale
  • 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro leaves
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Drain and rinse chickpeas and add to a food processor. Add in dijon mustard, minced garlic and lemon juice and process until blended but still slightly chunky. (You can use a potato masher instead if you wish!)
  2. Dice the carrot, celery, onion and apple into very tiny pieces. Place into a large bowl for mixing the salad.
  3. Roughly chop the kale and cilantro leaves and add to bowl.
  4. Add chickpea mixture and veggies together, and season with salt and pepper. Mix together.
  5. Enjoy!!


2 SP (not counting bread)
The salad is best if given at least a day to refrigerate so flavors can blend. Store in sealed, refrigerated container for up to 1 week. Serve on bread, crostinis, wrapped in tortillas or lettuce, or eaten straight up with a fork!
