This chickpea salad is punchy and picnic-fresh, with a tangy dose of lemon/garlic/parm and sweet, refreshing herbs. It comes together quickly and tastes fabulous. Use it as a side or double the recipe to make it the main event with some flatbread and sliced tomato. Get this one down, it will be a favorite!
Make ahead! Store covered in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Notes: Olive oil is extra-virgin.
