Your ‘Bring a Salad or Side’ Go To Recipe

Summer is a season in Canada where you sometimes find yourself, (luckily might we add), being invited to a BBQ or dinner event on a weekly basis. As friendly guests we are usually asked to bring something. With the host taking care of the main dish, it’s often a salad or a side that you can contribute to help the host.
We love the Parmesan Chickpea Salad recipe because prep time is less than ten minutes, it can be made in advance, and people love it! It has the other bonus of being gluten free and is great for many vegetarians that consume dairy so you can be sure that more of the crowd can enjoy your dish.
Finding some recipes that can be your ‘go-to’ dishes can help eliminate stress, and save you both time and money. You can learn what these might be by making a list of ingredients that you seem to ‘always have on hand.’ We are all different and taking a peek in each others pantries and refrigerators we’d see just that! You might see that you you’re never without red onions, tomatoes and hot peppers, while the next person has plenty of garlic, a hundred shapes of pasta on hand, and cucumbers for days.
Parmesan Chickpea Salad is a delicious choice with commonly found pantry ingredients, try it for your next gathering. Check out our Recipe Box for more ideas to use your staples on hand.
