BBQ Chickpea Salad

I remember back in the day when I would plop myself down at the CPK after a day of shopping with my girlfriends and every single one of us got the BBQ Chicken Salad…which now I know has over 1000 calories and the same amount of fat as a Big Mac. UGH!  I definitely do not prescribe to the thought that ignorance is bliss, so instead, I head into the kitchen and come up with something that satisfies my palate in a healthier way. Alas, the BBQ chickpea salad was born! NOTE: In the colder months, you can roast the chickpeas if you like for a warmer approach.
