Here’s a wonderful vegetarian entrée with no cooking required! Serve over greens as we did here, or consider turning it into a snack and scoop some up with halved baby peppers. Because it’s so easy to make, toss all the ingredients together in the morning and pack it for lunch or at the end of a busy day for a super quick dinner. We loved the chickpeas in this dish, but you could also use canned black beans or kidney beans if you’d like. Queso fresco is a salty and crumbly fresh Mexican cheese that has a similar appearance and texture to feta but has a much milder flavor. Look for it near the other fresh cheeses at your supermarket.
