This dish can be served as an appetizer, side dish or even a main course! Thanks to my friend Hildi for helping me brainstorm about the dressing.
Here’s a potato salad that tastes closer to an “everything” bagel than it does to traditional potato salad. This dish is best when it’s served fresh.
Packed with all kinds of nutrients, this pasta salad could be served as a meal on its own. You can be creative with the shape of the pasta you choose to use, or can stick with your usual. The broccoli and dried cranberries add a lot of color to this dish, and if you opt to use cashews, you’ll end up with some bonus protein too!
Adding a bit of cooked tabouli to your Israeli salad changes the whole texture and feel of this dish. Some add chopped mint or parsley. Everyone serves it with lemon juice, olive oil and a pinch of salt. You can find Tabouli in the rice aisle or ethnic food section of your local supermarket. You can use plain, unflavored Tabouli, or the even the pre-seasoned brands. (Similar to buying a box of rice pilaf.) The Tabouli only takes a minute to prepare, and another 5 minutes until it’s ready!
These roasted chickpeas can be served as a side dish, used as a garnish on soup or as a salad topping. Frankly, I snack on these all day. If you’re looking for a delicious (and easy!) way to get more protein and fiber into your (and your kids’!) diet, try these – I bet you can’t have just one!
