Buffalo Chickpea Salad is an easy vegan dish that comes together with buffalo sauced chickpeas, spinach, avocado, celery, red onion, tomato, and a cashew ranch dressing.
I hate to admit this but when I was working in an office, I ate out for lunch everyday. *CRINGE* I don't think there's anything wrong with grabbing lunch with coworkers or using your lunch break to decompress on your own - But I was going out every single day. Even on days I packed a lunch...
When I started working from home, I loved being able to make delicious and fresh lunches all throughout the week. I quickly realized I didn't want to do this Monday-Friday, so I began my version of meal prepping. Create a few awesome dishes, that kept well and weren't boring. This buffalo chickpea salad is just that!
Whether you work in an office or at home, this salad will make you excited for a homemade lunch. Pile your greens high, top with soft buffalo sauced chickpeas, creamy avocado, crunchy celery, red onion, juicy tomatoes, and cool vegan ranch dressing!
