Since we are diving quickly into brunch season having a go-to salad is a perfect way to always make the table look awesome. This toasted chickpea salad has quickly become a standby for every brunch and dinner party we host. The flavors meld wonderfully together and even though its easy to make, the play on textures makes the salad seem quite fancy and festive. It’s the type of salad that everyone will love.
