Pepper Cucumber Chickpea Salad Wrap

Inspiration:

A bright cumin-lemon dressing works well with any thin-skinned pepper. Try rainbow of them, or focus on one palette, like yellow-orange. To turn the salad into dinner, add hard cooked eggs and thin strips of salami.

It is a cool, no cook, summer meal. Very delicious and a healthy quick recipe.

Black Pepper, the King of Spices offers a number of health benefits while providing an excellent depth of flavor to the dish. It helps to promote weight loss, improve digestion, relieve cold and cough, boost metabolism, and treat skin problems. Cumin is none else than its counterpart which too aids in digestion, boosts immune system, promotes skin health, treats respiratory disorders and has antiviral and antibacterial properties.
