Chickpea salad with garlic feta


I wouldn't say my kid is a picky eater however he is someone who prefers anything but chicken or meat..In the past I had to figure out ways to make sure he gets his protein intake..After endless attempts of shredding pieces of chicken into minuscule and microscopic shreds he still managed to pick out the tinee-tiny bits out of his mouth and yell out with his eyes fixated on Toopy and Binoo "There is chicken in this" !!!! I as usual would deny this and get THE LOOK from Imaad for lying. LOL ! Our parenting styles differ, he obviously felt lying to the kid is bad regardless of why even if its a white lie. Whereas, me, Ive always felt a white lie that doesnt kill anybody is hardly a lie. I know all you women out there are nodding your heads in agreeance with me. We have all been there ! So recently, I have come to learn that I guess we should accept each other for who we are. In the same way, I feel I should just cater to my kids likes and dislikes and the stress in my life may start to diminish.


 This kid loves to eat well and has an evolved taste palate from the beginning. Avocados, Mushrooms, blue cheese, macaroons... what can I say..I suppose I fed my kid everything but pakistani food. Which I so regret now but we all make mistakes I suppose. So this recipe was an outcome of something I figured my borderline vegetarian/pescetarian kid will enjoy and needless to say he did.
The recipe is a simple one:
I used a can of chickpeas  (Usually I would boil my own).
Cucumbers 
Tomatoes 
Dill/ olive Oil and honey.
greek feta with either fried fresh garlic or garlic powder from the spice aisle.
salt n pepper
I usually never measure things... so its hard for me to give you those.. My style is Bang Bang a pinch of this and a Pinch of that. 
Feed your kids well.
Cheers,
Nida
