With a base of smooth chickpeas, refreshing cucumbers and juicy tomatoes, this salad is the perfect side dish for the warmer months! Naturally, I had to add some decadent mini mozzarella balls and savory prosciutto to add some depth of flavor. I topped everything off with fresh dill, salt, pepper and a homemade lemon, honey, balsamic vinaigrette. You can also make this salad the day before your dinner party, the flavors will only intensify while marinating! —Marissa Mullen
