Market Salad

Market Salad

A perfect little market salad I make when I crave a hearty veggie plate but still want healthy. Roasting the asparagus along with the chickpeas add different textures while the tomatoes are simply sliced and left in their natural state. A sprinkle of feta cheese adds savoriness and the champagne vinaigrette delightfully complements this medley of vegetables. This roasted asparagus market is actually a favorite of mine that I make every week. I’ll double the recipe and eat it as a mid-afternoon snack
