Flavorful Salad Idea

Look what I found at Trader Joe’s today!
I decided to bring it home and make it into a salad for lunch.  Per serving, these babies pack 12 grams of fiber, 11 grams of protein and 20% of your daily iron.
I grabbed a handful of almonds and gave them a rough chop.
I put 1/2 the bag of chickpeas (1/2 bag = 1 serving) on top of a bed of salad mix (spinach and arugula), then sprinkled the almonds on top.  The chickpeas had so much flavor that the salad didn’t need dressing.  
What are you favorite Trader Joe’s discoveries?

    I saw those chicken peas- looks like a great salad idea! šŸ™‚ Thanks! I like the cooked lentils they sell in the refrigerated section. I add them to soups & make salads with them too. Anything quick and easy works for me! šŸ™‚
