Marinated Mushroom and Chickpea Salad

Bring this savory Marinated Mushroom and Chickpea Salad to your next picnic or barbecue! Enjoy on it's own as a vegetarian option, or as a side dish.

Friends, I have a new favorite salad to share with you. It’s not your typical “green” salad but instead a savory Marinated Mushroom and Chickpea Salad. It’s really the best kind of light and savory food for this summer heat in my opinion.

I’ve already made this dish 3 times this summer and plan to make it again in the next week. I’ve enjoyed it on it’s own for a light lunch as well as a side dish for one of our grill nights. It’s great if you are looking for a vegetarian option to serve at a barbecue or bring to a picnic. I love storing it in a very large mason jar – it gives you the opportunity to give it a little shake before serving so that the marinade gets distributed to all the mushrooms and chickpeas. Plus, food in a jar is always nicer to look at, especially if you are bringing it to a potluck – just pour out into a bowl and serve!

If you are a mushroom lover, please try it and let me know what you think!
