Wow, what a great salad this is. Healthy, high in protein, hearty and packed full of flavor. We enjoyed this as a main meal salad today, with whole grain bread, it really made a satisfying meal.

Black Rice, Asparagus and Chickpea Salad

It would also be a good salad to take to parties or pot luck suppers. Black rice, red rice, forgotten rice, Southern “dirty rice” or purple rice would all be tasty with this recipe. This is really a winner.
