Chickpea Salad with Mandarin Drizzle

 Chickpea's are a great source of nutrition.  The Basil combined with the Arugula adds different levels of flavor and is complimented by the Cranberries.

Warm Chickpea Salad with Mandarin Drizzle:

1 Cup Chickpeas (canned)
1/3 Cup dried Cranberries
1/2 + 1/8 Cup fresh Basil Leaves (whole leaves, not chopped)
1/2 Cup Baby Arugula

Add all ingredients into a microwave safe bowl.

Heat in microwave for 10 seconds.

Drizzle with Mandarin Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar

Heat in microwave for another 10 seconds.

Salad should be slightly warmed and Arugula and Basil will be ever so slightly wilted.

Add a dollop of Goat Cheese for some extra creamy flavor.

Serves 1.
