Tomato and Chickpea Salad

I’m slowly exploring the different sections of The Looneyspoons Collection cookbook. There are so many great recipes in this book that are flavour-filled and good for you.  The recipe I’m going to share with you is a super easy salad that would be a great side at a bbq or party.
