There is an end in sight to our RV living, at least for this year. We are soon-to-be home owners! A home without wheels. We are all excited about moving, but we will miss having our tiny home as our HQ. There is something so special and unique about small-home living and we have gained a lot from the experience. One thing I have missed, however, is counter space. Chopping veggies with little counter space is not an easy task. Which is why I love this Loaded Veggie Salad! Minimal veggie chopping is involved and most of the ingredients come from a can (with a few fresh thrown in!). I love how easy, colorful, crunchy and versatile this yummy little salad is. It is a great recipe to have hanging out in your fridge throughout the week and it’s also great for parties.

What are the best vegetables to put in a salad?
Vegetables are made for salads, so in my opinion every veggie is fair game. Seriously. Every single vegetable on the planet belongs in salad, but here are a few of my faves: tomatoes, avocados, onions, cucumbers, bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, carrots, artichokes, celery, mushrooms, lettuce and kale. The ingredients in this Loaded Veggie Salad create the most perfect combination of flavors:
Chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
Diced green chiles
Salt and pepper
My favorite thing about salads like this one is the versatility. I'll tell you all of the uses that came just from this one batch: Solo lunch salad, topping for a leafy salad along with grilled chicken, complement to scrambled eggs, wrap filling and a dip for chips. It never gets old and the flavors are amazing!
