Roasted Chickpea Kale Salad

I am the queen of finely chopping things up. This salad is just that. A whole bunch of really great ingredients. Finely chopped. And mixed together. What more could you ask for?  This allows for a great blend of flavors and textures. I’ve made this salad so many times for friends, and it’s always a hit. Let’s get to chopping!

We’re starting this dish off by roasting up our chickpeas.  Drizzle the chickpeas with olive oil and then toss with paprika and cayenne.  These spices are known as anti-inflammatory spices, so they do great things for your bod while contributing mouthwatering flavor!  Next, you’ll bake the chickpeas for 30-35 minutes until crispy and brown.  While that bakes, take all your other finely chopped ingredients and mix together.  This will be your kale, onion, sun dried tomatoes, and walnuts. Dress it up with some tahini, olive oil, and lemon juice and top with roasted chickpeas. Enjoy!
