Watermelon & Chickpeas Salad~~Vegan Thursdays

Have you ever combined watermelon and cooked chickpeas in salad??, if not dont forget to give a try to this combo, am sure you will definitely love this super refreshing salad as my kids just enjoyed having this vegan salad. Just with a hint of pepper powder,salt and dry herbs is enough to spice up this quick salad.An easy breezy salad which suits prefectly for a hot summer lunch or for an evening dinner.You can also mix and match any seasonal fruits or cooked beans for making this salad eventhough my choice is watermelon and chickpeas.

This salad is my second post for this week's blogging marathon as my theme for this week is Kid's delight-Summer special.Coming to this salad,watermelon and chickpeas combination tastes utterly delicious,cool,refreshing and fantastic.If you make this salad once, am sure this salad will become a regular salad in your summer dinner or lunch.Also am posting this vegan and nutritious salad today for Vegan Thursdays, an vegan event running twice a month started by me.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#30.Sending to Srivalli's Summer Special Mela.

Pepper powder 
Dry parsley leaves (as per need)
