Chickpea Salad

We’ve actually been getting snow around here recently which in crazy for this time of year!  The bulbs I planted in the fall are poking up and it’s making me hungry for spring and the garden.  This dish definetely helps, it is so easy and fresh, like many of the dishes I make in the spring.  It’s very addictive, every time I make it I can’t stop eating it!  It makes a great appetizer too, and can easily be made ahead of time.
