Summer Ranch Dressing Salad

Thursday, May 21, 2015



Now that the weather is getting warmer and summer is approaching I love having a light salad on the side to any meal or BBQ.  Here is an easy salad recipe that my family and I enjoy and I'd love to share with you too!


Summer Ranch Dressing Salad

Ingredients:

1 cucumber - peeled and cut up
1 large tomato - cut up
1 can chickpeas - rinsed
1/4 cup of red onion - cut up
3 tablespoons ranch dressing
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

In a bowl add cucumber, tomato, chickpeas, red onion and mix all together.  Add salt and pepper and the ranch dressing and mix all together.

*  You can adjust this salad to any size that you like.

Done!

I hope you bring this salad to your next BBQ!

  5. This looks delicious. Sometimes I get tired of salads with lettuce, so this would be perfect. Wish it would warm up a little here. We're having stew tonight b/c it's still kind of chilly!

  33. Hi Julie. Believe it or not, our days are still warm here and it's not unusual for us to still be eating salads. I'm definitely putting this one on the list. It could quite easily be a whole meal in itself for me. Thanks so much for always visiting me each week at Thriving on Thursdays. I'm featuring this one at tomorrow's party. Have a great weekend!
