Loaded Chickpea Slaw
Let's talk about lunch prep. I feel like the Sunday meal prepping people do tends to be more for weeknight dinners but lunch has always been a big prep situation for me. I love those Whole Foods type salad bars but it's expensive and not always convenient. So I make my own salad bar at home.
These days I work from my home studio but, even back in my agency days, I've always lunch prepped. There are no shortages of great delis in Manhattan but the healthiest options were always the ones I made myself. Realistically, though, if I had to do it in the morning while rushing to get out the door, it wouldn't get done. But a little prep on the weekends and I had my lunches portioned out.
Just a plain salad might not cut it but this one is loaded with all my favorite veggies and includes crispy chickpeas and an amazing mustard tahini dressing. It's like a cross between a Caesar and a tangy vinaigrette and it's thick, creamy and totally crave worthy. Enjoy!
