Fresher weather calls for cooling, hydrating foods at my house. One of my favorite cold dishes to whip up in big batches for the family is my Salmon Chickpea Pasta. It is protein-heavy, rich in fiber & has just the right amount of creaminess to it. I love that you can pull it straight from the fridge & serve it over butter lettuce shells or mixed greens. It also gets just more delicious as the flavors sit on top of each other. Who doesn't love that?
This recipe is for two servings, but modify for those busy weeks when you need something quick & simple for lunchtime or dinner! Salmon is a fatty fish known for being rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids that are great for heart health. If you aren't a fan of Salmon, you can always switch for Tuna fish if it fits your tastebuds better.
