A dream salad ideal for spring! Full of vegetables, protein and nutrients. This salad-meal with orzo, chickpeas and grilled vegetables will blow you away.

There is nothing better for me, nothing more filling, nothing more delicious than a salad-meal. In fact, the more colors my salad has, the more healthy and nutritious it is. And this salad has it all!

How you will make it?

It takes a little more cooking but you can make the more of it and eat it for two days for sure.

Basically you have to boil the chickpeas (if you do not choose to use canned) and the orzo and roast the vegetables. From the chickpeas that you will boil, you will make some hummus that you will use in your dressing.

What vegetables did I use?

The vegetables I used are: red pepper, zucchini, carrots, cauliflower, onion.

Tips and Substitutions

Instead of orzo you can use quinoa or rice and instead of chickpeas you can use lentils or beans.

In place of the cauliflower you can easily put broccoli.
