Chickpeas and Cucumber Salad

For a little while now I have been playing around with the idea of going vegan or gluten free. Being a true hard core carnivore can be quite hard to make such a decision, so I slowly have been easing the family into that idea when I came across this salad recipe from shewearsmanyhats. I have always been a fan of salads so trying something new for salad was exciting. I love how refreshing this salad is. I made some teriyaki snapper fillets to go along with it. This definitely was a GREAT meal!
