Beet & Chickpea Salad

New year, new you? Whatever your New Years resolutions are -- there is no better time to begin eating nutritiously and healthily than at the present moment.


Here is this weeks' recipe hand picked from Leanne Brown's, "Good and Cheap: Eat Well on $4/Day." Recipes to follow (along with this one) are affordable, convenient, and use ingredients that can (to some degree) be locally sourced.

Beet and Chickpea Salad


2 to 3 beets, peeled and grated

1 cup chickpeas, cooked or canned

3 tbsp peanuts

Dressing ingredients:

1 tbsp lime juice

1 tsp chili sauce
