Greece has always been at the tip top of my travel bucket list. From the beautiful beaches to the colorful buildings it has always been a place I have wanted to explore. Not to mention all the delicious fresh food and people sitting around drinking wine all day, those are MY kind of people. I’m pretty sure they would love me just as much as I would love them, so it’s a dream I can’t wait to come to fruition.
But, since we aren’t all there today, we can dream with this Mediterranean inspired chickpea salad (which would go great with a glass of white wine, just sayin’). This healthy dish comes together quick and easy and holds up well to several days in the refrigerator which makes it great for parties or lunches during the week. So much can be inspired by our travel dreams, so what’s at the top of your travel bucket list?
