How to Store

Store this Chickpea Cucumber Salad in an airtight container or in a bowl covered with plastic wrap. Place it in the refrigerator and it will stay fresh for up to 2 days, but the sooner you eat it, the better. The lettuce and cucumbers will release moisture as they sit, making the salad soggy. So try to only make what you need the day you serve it.
