Salmon and Chick Pea Salad 5.00/5 (2 votes)

Monday and Tuesday night's efforts come together to make tonight's meal a breeze, and a delicious one at that. So, open the fridge and grab your leftover salmon and herb vinaigrette. Then toss a few ingredients together and you're done. And if you want to save even more time, I've been know to microwave asparagus on a plate for about 2 minutes instead of boiling it - just saying. :-)

NOTES

KID NOTE: My kids are not big salad eaters. So, I deconstructed this meal to include portions of salmon, asparagus, and chick peas.
