Curried Chickpea Salad

Want something light and filling for lunch one day? Try my Curried Chickpea Salad. It has a nice sweet and semi spicy flavor. There isn’t anything heavy about it, so it can stand alone as a healthy meal or act as a side dish along side chicken or fish. The dressing is made with mango chutney and Greek yogurt. I suggest mixing those two ingredients together in a separate bowl before folding it into the chickpeas. Let me know your thoughts on the flavor!
