Wild Rice & Chickpea Tabbouleh

Wild Rice & Chickpea Tabbouleh

There are certain recipes that I gravitate to when I know my schedule is going to get hectic.  Lemon Herb Roasted Chicken is definitely one of them, but right next to it at the top of that list is this wild rice salad.  I love that it holds up for several days, so it fits well into a meal prep day and gives you a few different options for lunches and/or dinners throughout the week.

Provencal Chickpea & Quinoa Salad

Chickpea & Quinoa Provencal

It is my dream to visit Provence.  I imagine that I’ll find a quaint little house to rent with a bright blue door and window boxes overflowing with flowers.  The house will sit on a lane just a short walk from town (What town?  I have no idea; does it matter?  This is a dream after all.) and border a lavender farm so every night as I go to sleep with my windows open (blissfully unconcerned about mosquitoes or would-be intruders), the warm air will carry with it the soothing scent of lavender.  Next to my bright blue door, I’ll have a giant rosemary bush and whenever I pass by it I’ll pull off a few springs and stuff them in my pockets, because I have a strange tendency to do that.  I think it’s an excellent plan.  Who wants to join me?  You are extra specially welcome to come if you know French….since I don’t….and it would probably be helpful.
