Romaine Ranch Salad with Asparagus & Chick Peas

Romaine Ranch Salad with Asparagus & Chick Peas

It is fun to try new things!  I often get caught up preparing the same meals over and over again - it can make mealtime easier, but it can get boring!  Don't be afraid to try something different than your usual every once in a while.   And this is a great time of year to rethink some meals, as Spring is beginning to bring us lots of delicious new produce, like Asparagus.  I had some leftover roasted Asparagus from the night before sitting in the fridge so I chopped it up and threw it into my salad yesterday for lunch and it was awesome!   Check it out:

Romaine Ranch Salad with Asparagus & Chick Peas Recipe

2 cups chopped Romaine lettuce
10 pieces Roasted Asparagus, chopped, leftover from the night before
1 cup Chick Peas (drained and rinsed, if canned)
1/2 cup Corn (no salt added, canned, rinsed)
1 tbsp Sunflower Seeds (in this case, salted)
1 tbsp Ranch Dressing

Totally yummy and filling salad for lunch!  Adding some sliced Red Onion to this salad would also be a great addition for an additional zip of flavor; sadly we didn't have any in our kitchen when I made it - next time for sure!
