  • Rinse chickpeas and add to large salad bowl.
  • Rinse frozen corn under warm water to thaw out and add to large salad bowl.
  • Mix all ingredients together.

Lemon Almond Butter Oil-Free Dressing

  • Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and fork well to combine. I use a fork as the almond butter may be thick. Add more water for a thinner dressing, 1 tablespoon at a time. Or keep it as is for a thinner dressing.

Garnish

  • Add cherry tomatoes and parsley for some color and beauty.
