Chickpea Mango Fusion Salad

mango chickpea fusion salad_text

I hope you had a weekend full of fun!

The highlight of our weekend–along with t-ball for Khaled, tennis class for me, and a bike race for my hubby–is moving to my new office. It’s in Herndon, VA, very close to Reston Town Center and Reston Hospital. The address is:

424 Herndon Pkwy, ste 116

Herndon, VA 20171

What I’ve enjoyed the most in the process is my family’s excitement and involvement in this move. My kids were moving stuff back and forth from the car to the office. Khaled (4), was so excited about being able to carry stuff (light in weight of course), because he’s ‘strong and eats healthy foods’ per his words. Both kids were happy to be in mama’s office!

Khaled even dressed up for the day!

    Hello Nour,

    I just found your site – It looks lovely! the Mango Fusion Salad looks delicious! I’m looking forward to more of your posts. I adore Persian/Mid Eastern food; I hope you incorporate food from Jordan in your blogs and recipes. 🙂

    Mango and chickpeas? Sounds like a great combination. The picture already gives me a craving. I really like the ingredients you use because I’m really a big fan of Indian food, and this is very similar to what I usually love to eat.

      Thanks for the comment! I was thinking Indian/Mexican fusion 🙂
