Basmati Rice Salad

This zesty salad perfectly captures what The Fat Resistance Diet recipes are all about: big, bold flavors and inflammation-fighting nutrition. This salad gets appetite satisfying flavor from exotic spices, lemon juice and fragrant sesame oil. Chickpeas are a great vegetarian source of protein making this basmati rice salad a complete meal.
