Cranberry Chickpea Salad

We just started carrying a new product. Soom brand Tahini and Chocolate Tahini. It's the best Tahini I've ever had. So many ideas for it. So I used it to tossed this quick chickpea salad together for lunch the other day. Everything I found was pre-diced, so it was easy enough to assemble even without countertops. Still waiting on that. Soon, I'll have a kitchen soon.

I'm tired of take out. I need to make food again.

Cranberry Chickpea Salad

2 cans chickpeas
1/2 cup diced carrots
1/2 cup diced green pepper
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup shelled edamame
4 tbsp chopped parsley
3 tbsp Cranberry Balsamic
1/2 cup Soom Tahini
Salt and pepper to taste

Rinse and drain the chickpeas. Stir everything together in a big bowl and enjoy your meal!

The tahini makes it so creamy. I am starting to see lots of ideas for this!

Heide is a new employee of ours and we are enjoying working with her very much. She made this sauce the other day and shared it with us. It's great to have another creative cook!
