Chickpea kale salad at Little Goat
The salad starts out as healthy as can be, with a bed of kale, chopped veggies and chickpeas. Throw in chickpea fritters, tangy cheese, tzatziki and a mountain of fried onions and we’re not so virtuous anymore. The chickpea fritters have a je ne sais quoi that surpasses ordinary falafel, and the lemon-kimchi vinaigrette brightens up the mess of ingredients with a tart kick. What more could you ask of a salad?
