This recipe is something different from the regular plain salad, something a bit more fun. The best part about this dressing is that it’s easy to throw together the day of serving. Pro Tip – a little pinch of sugar in the dressing helps to round out the flavor and make it EXTRA delicious. Highly recommend!

- 1 tablespoon water

To make dressing, combine the ingredients in a small bowl or jar with a lid and whisk or shake until emulsified.
In a portable container with a lid, layer the salad ingredients, beginning with the dressing. Next add the chickpeas, then the olives, cucumber, tomatoes, lettuce and cheese. Chill until ready to serve.
To serve, shake the container vigorously to toss the salad. Transfer to a serving plate and serve immediately.
