The thing that makes a salad so special to me is an extra and unexpected ingredient. So I always keep something pickled in the fridge and something crunchy in the pantry.
One of my favorite crunchy salad ingredients are roasted chickpeas! These delicious salad toppers are slow roasted in the oven with rich smoky bacon, tangy fresh chives and sweet savory garlic. Sprinkled with salt & pepper, every flavor shines through!
