HELLO SUMMER! It's June 1st and the weather is finally starting to warm up in New England. I can't tell you how painfully long and dreary this spring has felt. Heck, just the thought of not having to lug around an umbrella everywhere is welcomed news to me. Soon enough it will be beach weather and I couldn't be happier about that!
With the onset of warmer weather I find myself in the predicament of reevaluating what's on the menu for lunch. In the dreary wet spring months I tended to gravitate towards soups and stews, burrito bowls, and basically anything else hot. Now that the sun is shining and the mercury is rising I'm craving something altogether different. In addition to preferring my lunch chilled, I'm also craving healthier options that won't leave me tired and sluggish. Although this seems to happen every year I still haven't managed to make myself a cheat sheet of quick and easy summer recipes to refer back to. I really need to get on that!
Lucky for me I stumbled upon a classic that will no doubt get plenty of play this summer. Truth-be-told, I've never met a curried salad I didn't love. And while curried chicken salad or couscous salad are also among my favs, this Curried Chickpea Salad takes the cake for being quick, easy, satisfying, and delicious without leaving me clamoring for an afternoon nap.
Best of all you can make it ahead and it will be delicious for days to come. Pop it in your work bag or beach tote and take it to go. And don't forget the water! You'll need lots more of that in the months to come.
Happy Summer all!
