Chickpea Confetti Salad: a hearty and delicious summer salad

This chickpea confetti salad is one of my family’s summer staples.  It was initially inspired from extra chickpeas, tahini, and lemon juice leftover from making homemade hummus.  I mixed in some chopped red bell pepper, parsley, and red onion to add some color and crunch.  This salad is especially delicious served with grilled lemon rosemary chicken on top of a bed of baby spinach.
