  1. Dice your chicken into cubes then slide them onto skewers for grilling. Season both sides of the kabobs with sea salt and pepper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the chickpeas, edamame, cucumber, mango and arugula. Set aside.
  3. In a blender, combine the tahini, lemon juice, black pepper and minced garlic. Add water and blend well until smooth. Add more water 1 tbsp at a time if needed to reach desired consistency. Set dressing aside.

  5. Plate your salad and lay kabobs over top. Drizzle with desired amount of tahini dressing. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Vegans & Vegetarians: Skip the chicken. This is a complete meal without it! Roast the chickpeas before hand if you like it hot.
  • No Mango: Use diced pineapple or fresh blueberries instead.
  • No Arugula: Use baby spinach, kale or mixed greens instead.
