Creamy Summer Salad (with Crispy BBQ Chickpeas)

What started as a summer panzanella salad magically morphed into the most zingy, fresh, delicious, creamy summer salad on the block. We swapped bread croutons for super flavorful Crispy BBQ Chickpeas (optional but recommended), which add plenty of plant-based protein and fiber. And we skipped the greens and went straight for a rainbow of fresh chopped veggies and fresh pineapple for maximum flavor.

The dressing is shockingly simple and delicious: Just lime juice, tahini, coconut aminos, salt, and pepper.
