Curried Veggie Noodle and Chickpea Salad

We had a Post Canada Day party on July 4th (yes, Happy 4th to our neighbours south of the border) this year as the weather was less than optimal on July 1 and we were also up north visiting my mom for her 70th birthday which was July 2 (Happy Birthday Mom!). Anyway, the weather on the 4th was spectacular! It was about 28 deg and the sun was out in full force. A perfect day for a pot luck BBQ/pool party.

We had the usual hamburgers, sausage and hot dogs but I thought I would mix it up with a few of my more fancier salads. I wanted something more exciting than a everyday garden or caesar salad. Don’t get me wrong I love a nice salad no matter how you make it but this BBQ called for something a little more interesting.

I made my hubbys favourite 3 Bean Salad and this new little salad somewhat reminiscent of a coleslaw. The beauty of these two salads is I was able to make them the night before. I stored the dressing for this salad in a sealed jar along side all the prepared veggies and added the dressing just before I served it to avoid it getting too mushy.

I think this year everyone had the same idea as me. Our pot luck table didn’t boast even one potato or macaroni salad. Guess it was the year of the fancy salads!

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
