Welcome back to round two of our summer salad series! Today’s feature is a delicious Greek-Inspired Chickpea Kale Salad. I know I know- you may be asking yourselves… where are the olives?

Grab your local produce (if possible), and let’s get started! This salad will make approximately 4-6 servings.
