    Ulrike, this looks so good…I’ve never had a salad like this before and am eager to try making it here. It looks delicious. I also am going to try doing my chickpeas from scratch like you did…canned things always taste a little „tinny“ to me. Thank you for sharing the recipe, I’m sure I’m going to love it.
